GP surgery numbers to be cut as part of major plans around sustainability


No secret there that the plan is privatization and total annihilation of small practices as a bigger chunk will attract big Corpos who wish capitalize on the demise of NHS. It is flawed thinking that we should learn from the commercial sector as health services are always non-profit and require government subsidy. Corporations will tear the system apart to squeeze out any profits that can be made and that will spell doom and gloom for the ordinary sick populace. No country runs a profit-making Healthcare system. This talk of sustainability is a guise to sell out to the fat cats who would not venture into a doomed jungle if there was no lure of smoking venison.
