Just saw this new idea that the NHS is considering paying people £100 per night to rent rooms Air BNB- style to post surgical patients to free up beds.

It seems like a really strange and potentially dangerous idea that people who are not well enough to return home would be left with untrained people.

One good thing has come out of the CareRooms initiative - it has made us look at how we perceive women's work, and how little we value it.
