    This week it is the NHS’s 69th birthday, on 5 July. It’s an opportunity to remind politicians that the staff who work for it deserve a decent salary. And, while some celebrating is in order, there are many reasons to be concerned about our much loved but ailing institution.

    Jargon busting 

    DBE, SLR, SOB, IRQ, NWB: we all know what they mean, don’t we? But would your healthcare colleagues understand your notes – and what about your patients?
