Frontline or tightrope?

As the various media outlets and commentators discuss health care, nursing, medicine and social care they often refer to the frontline -

Where exactly is the frontline these days (and nights)?

Who is on the frontline?
Is the frontline always visible?
Is there a 2nd, 3rd or 4th line?
Are there any gaps in the frontline?
Is it twisted at any point?
When health care economics is squeezed
how does this affect the frontline?
Does the frontline have an optimal tension?
If the frontline is Lean, in lean times
does it have a harmonic?
How has the frontline changed over
the past 20 years?
How is our frontline forecasting?
Is there space on that (front-) line for
partners, information technology,holistic
bandwidth, values, policy, safety ..., ....?

All doodles welcome.
