Is Our NHS in Safe Hands?


Recommended Posts

10.45pm ITV tomorrow (Tuesday 17th December.)

 

'The Dirty War on the NHS'

 

'Documantary examining plans to sell off the National Health Service in favour of an insurance-based healthcare  system, which in the US, denies treatment to millions of people.'

 

Should make interesting viewing. Let's see if the NHS is safe with Boris, or if what Jeremy Corbyn suspected was correct.

What, you mean like when Blair said we have "24 hours to save the NHS" and all the other Labour lies for decades about selling it off:

Plus, it seems an odd late time to put on such an important programme.

Let's just watch it first shall we, before we pass judgement.

We are all going to get ill at some point, we are all going to get old. We may have friends or relatives needing the services of the NHS right now, so this concerns every one of us. I urge everyone to watch this important programme about the NHS as soon as possible, on repeat, catch up or whatever. You really do need to see it.

 

The NHS safe with the Tories?

Starting with Thatcher, it hasn't been safe with the Tories or Blair for the last 40 years, and is the main reason it's in the state it's in.

Covert privatisation by the back door has ruined it, along with internal competition, and things like PFI, and the blame is passed on to the NHS as though it's all been their fault, and privatisation is the cure. And this is the unforgivable bit; all a deliberate policy to dupe the public;  an intentional and calculated subterfuge of lies and misdirection to stop them from knowing what's been going on (and is still going on) under their noses.

It is already almost at the point of no return, if we allow it to continue there will be no NHS in 10 years time.

 

 I can see why this programme couldn't be shown before the election. Watch it,  it's dynamite. 'The Dirty War on the NHS.'

All the talk of the NHS being sold off on one form or another. 

 

For any UK political party to even consider this would be their death knell, so it's never going to happen, no matter how much some may like it to happen because they could make money off the back of it or perversely how much some would like it to happen, just to say 'I told you so.' 

 

It would be the end of any political party even considering it.

Has it though?

 

Is the public’s fear of creeping NHS privatisation justified?

From the article:

 

Prof Appleby suggested that discussions on the role of the private sector may have become so loaded that they were now obscuring sensible debate.

“As an economist, the thing I care about and I think other people should care about is not, ideologically, ‘who owns the means of production?’ but ‘is owning the means of production important in terms of the volume and quality of patient care and the efficiency with which it’s delivered?’” he said.

Some worry about private companies taking profits out of the NHS, but Prof Appleby said: “Just because that happens doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad thing because, as we know, profits may be the incentive to actually lower costs and provide a really efficient service.

“That’s a premium you might pay, but in some cases it could be a better use of money.”
