Headline

Government to blame for poor doctor morale, says former health minister

Comment

The point is that May and Hammond will continue to hold austerity over pay. They expect clinicians to continue taking on more work, until people drop, change career , emigrate or retire. Nothing is going to change. The only thing that matters for them is to balance the financial books of UK PLC. The unfortunate thing is that world economics demands that they have to do this. In the process they are expecting all government workers to do the above. I don't think things will change even if there were strikes. So it's about putting up with it or getting out, setting up private practice...we will never again see an NHS that is funded to deliver the care that we were used to...there is no prospect of UK PLC delivering the profits it used to...rising demand for care will never again be met through the NHS
