This is their blurb…:”The arts don’t stand still. And neither do we. We are now entering one of the most exciting and challenging periods of artistic, social and technological change. As the recognised voice for the arts in England we are changing to meet these challenges and will focus more on national leadership, strategic development and planning and making a stronger case for the arts. We aim to provide the ideal platform for the future development of the arts in all their present day diversity….”

Just don’t fall in to the trap that has this Ambulance blogger annoyed.

“We [London Ambulance Service]… ‘underachieved’ at “Deliver a ten percentage point increase per year in the proportion of people suffering from a heart attack who receive thrombolysis within 60 minutes of calling for professional help.” – Is this because we don’t do thrombolysis in London, instead we take the patient to an angioplasty centre, which is much better for the patient….”

Is this another case of tick boxing and percentages gone wrong….
