Busy Privatising The NHS
This is just in the first three months of Tory control over the NHS, it is the very start of the the Conservative government privatisation plans for the NHS, so it will get a lot worse. Despite being warned repeatedly by the BMA and the majority of GPs, who want to stay being doctors NOT accountants, this government is just steam rolling in.
While David Cameron, George Osborne and Nick Clegg are cutting services, raising the cost of living, freezing child benefit, cutting housing benefit, raising VAT, forcing over a million people out of their jobs and on to the dole, shamelessly and brutally assaulting the disabled, vulnerable and chronically sick, Andrew Lansley is quietly cracking on with the Conservative plans to disband, dismantle and privatise our NHS.
Targets worked because they forced hospitals to improve.
Lansley scrapped the 18 week rule to avoid patients suing companies when the NHS is eventually privatised.
Even ex-Tory Health Secretary Stephen Dorrell has warned that an NHS starved of funds spells painful times ahead.
Despite her best efforts Maggie Thatcher never got round to turning the NHS into a market for profit company, but recently we have seen the first NHS hospital to be sold off completely to the private sector.
"Cameron's mob is handing control to consortiums of private businesses that are dressed up as GPs."
The Tories are privatising our NHS and they do not even bother denying it.
