A&Es face 'unprecedented demand' as four trusts declare alerts

Comment

The elephant in the room, yet again, the word no one will say is 'Privatisation'. Successive governments have prepared the NHS for privatisation and pushed it into financial crisis so it appears the only answer to the NHS's woes will be privatisation. The working conditions are rapidly deteriorating, we cannot maintain staff, moral at rock bottom, money already rapidly funnelled into the private sector, mortality rocketing, waiting times increasing, hospitals and GP practices closing. Among the lowest ration of beds/doctors/% of GDP spent on health per capita compared with other developed countries, and falling. What is happening to the NHS is a planned assault and the BMA, Royal Colleges have been at time complicit and at other simply turning the other cheek. Don't worry though Celebrity Bake Off will be back on soon......
