Hopefully it'll work and people can stop being killed by the NHS's poor management by the government. Really though, prevention is better than cure, if you'll excuse the clichÃ©. Basic hygiene standards need to be improved in hospitals so that people don't contract MRSA in the first place. A cure would be great, but somebody needs to take responsibility for the the problem occurring in the first place. Where is the accountability....?
