The House of Lords held a Commission to look at the "Long Term Sustainability of the NHS". It was clear to us that this was a very poor and ill-thought out exercise with a pure bias towards the belief that the future is bleak and we will have to endure changes - the biggest of course being CHARGES and health insurance schemes.

 

We demanded that the Lords Committee were robust in their research and consider the equally viable option that a publicly funded, owned, delivered & managed NHS is a better way to maintain a pubic service.

 

You can imagine the silent response. BUT it was noted in the report that 3000 emails had been received by concerned citizens.

Thanks to Campaigners around the country the general public and councillors and even MPs are more aware of the dangerous game being played by NHS England, Jeremy Hunt and Simon Stevens.

 

These STPs (now miraculously called Partnerships not Plans) are still rampaging across our NHS with not parliamentary debate or statutory legitimacy.

 

Having divided the country into 44 Footprints - much easier to control than 2013 CCGs as created by the last top-down reorganisation (the infamous 2012 Health & Social Care Act) - nHS England are now demanding what it calls

 

Efficiency Savings - we say CUTS. HUGE DESTRUCTIVE CUTS designed not to save money but to shrink and transform the NHS into a new USA style two tier health service. Rationing treatments so that those who can afford it will pay for private healthcare and those who can't will have to make do with a basic very poor basic service.

STPs - What are they?

What's Up with Sarah?

At the end of 2016 - Sarah Wollaston MP,

Chair of Health Select Committee accused politicians of failing and misleading the public and sees the dangers facing the NHS.

 

But on August 19th 2017 at the #TalkNHS debate at the Royal Society of Medicine - Sarah Wollaston MP, Chair of Health Select Committee said: "I know people talk of Americanisation and a two tier system but I honestlyu can't see the evidence of privatisation in the NHS".

 

We can't quite work her out. But we did decide to give her an award. Find out more by clicking
