Austerity and what it means for practices


You see. It is cunning politics to devolve more 'power' to CCGs as well as forthcoming political power houses. The way it goes , some fee payment from patients to supplement NHS service will become almost inevitable . Typically , Tories will serve for low tax ideology but also not play political 'suicide' to raise anything leading to the accusation of privatisation . So strangulate whatever is available in current NHS and pass the buck of making decisions to CCGs and the local Mayors. Here you go , if a fee needs to be charged , it is not coming out of the mouth of the PM , Chancellor or Health Secretary . 'You bas***ds in charge of the CCGs/power house will have to explain to the public why you have to be rationing and also charge a fee.' Well, well , well,you guys asked for more power , here is the f***ing power. The central government can wash its hands and DoH remains politically righteous . Remember 'Big Society' ? You guys in the society have to sort out any mess , it is not our responsibility in the central government !!
