The Dirty War on the National Health Service ?
Essential viewing for anyone reading the main NHS thread ( Link above ) … so much of it … from the opening hospital discharge dumping … is relevant :
Thanks to Honey Badger … and DON’T enjoy , merely feel incredulous ?
No reader shocked by what they have viewed ?
DELAYED until after the General Election … what a surprise … and a relief for some ???
Yes. Just viewed it last night. Very true what was presented on the US system. If we think things are bad now, just wait!
Yep … now FIVE whole years for the dismantling to continue.
What’s next ?
All care homes to be in private hands … thus relieving the LAs of that burden ???
( Any notion of care to come second to profit ??? )
Charities to be given further tax breaks in exchange for " Honouring " that gagging order on Government policy ?
Profit wins over care when those management consultants arrive. Oh, they’re already here!
In many ways , view the NHS as an ailing business.
Any predator would be looking at the profitable parts … supplies mainly , drugs and medications and out sourcing opportunities … that’s where the real danger lies.
They will not interested in OUR NHS as a whole.
As for the USA Insurance giants … that’s where the GREEN PAPER ON SOCIAL CARE comes in.
Tremendous pressure to get some form of insurance scheme going.
( Again , that word PROFIT … before the only real solution … recombining and funding through general taxation ??? )
Then , for at least 14 million or so surviving below the official Poverty Line , that really could be " Goodnight Vienna " … ?
( That Unholy Trinity of ours … to transform into the Four Horsemen … eat / heat / roof … and now … stamp ? )
None of this helped by the UK electorate … like turkeys voting for Christmas ???
( What was on offer by all and sundry was the worst in my memory. )
Mmmm … only one review from readers ?
Probably the most important tv documentary on the NHS for a decade.
Still available on the ITV web site.
It really is compulsive viewing !
