Is the NHS really safe in Tory hands?

Post by witchfinder on Sat Oct 08, 2011 2:01 pm

First topic message reminder :

Here is a news item from North Yorkshire which never made it onto the national headlines

A York-based practice has written to its patients offering them a range of minor treatments privately, claiming they are not funded by the local NHS.

Doctors' leaders said this could be the start of a worrying trend due to the squeeze on finances and NHS overhaul.

The letter, seen by the BBC, said local health chiefs had stopped funding a range of services, but added they could still have them done privately at a number of clinics, including one owned by the practice.

These included removing skin tags from £56.30 to treating benign tumours for £243.20.

Dr Richard Vautrey, of the British Medical Association, added: "The dire finances of many trusts means that many more NHS treatments are likely to become unavailable in the future".

In both English and Scottish Law that "promise" probably comprises a False Bill of Sale.
But who're you gonna sue?

A great many 'somethings' have been done - hence the mess we find ourselves in

Clarkson: "It's cruel to let the NHS suffer like this"

In today's Sunday Times, Jeremy (no, the other one this time) explains that the NHS must be scrapped completely and come up with something "that actually works". (As opposed to swanning around the world upsetting the natives, one supposes.)
