Education Guardian| Higher | This is an emergency

There is an interesting speculative piece in today's Guardian by Donald MacLeod, about the possible future role, function and purpose of the NHSU once the report of the review conducted by Sir William Wells is released.

Much of the piece concerns the "University" aspiration balanced against the need to correct identified deficits in functional literacy and numeracy skills amongst the staff. It includes quotes from Bob Fryer (NHSu chief executive) and senior labour politicians supporting the vision of an NHSu and a confidential Strategic Health Authority submission questioning the money already spent on "glossy brochures".

As the article suggests, it will be interesting to see whether the NHSu is in the next labour manifesto or whether it will receive a similar fate to the UKeU.
