The real conspiracy of NHS England

Comment

You are wrong. Conspiracy theories aren't in fact that glamorous. There is no guy sitting in a bunker in a jump suit stroking a cat, rather it's the banal business of people protecting their own interests. Remember, Jeremy Hunt wrote a book on how to privatize the NHS. I've heard it from reliable sources that government don't want to contract with units smaller than 50,000 patients which is why we are being herded together. We have a college that has only recently stool up for GPs, having spent the last decade toadying up to government and creating the worst exam in medicines history. There are also a few people in the CCGs and PCCCs who have a really low opinion of GPS and want to see the back of us because we hold them to account. A large number of politicians have financial interests in provider companies who are working out where there is money to be taken from the NHS - it's in the public domain and not fake news. Combine that with our death by 1000 cuts funding, a growing army of well remunerated regulators and greedy legal firms that have successfully pushed our indemnity to £10 000 and you can see that this is reality, a boring conspiracy but just as awful.
