Beware of the negative hype around the NHS – you could be being softened up to introduce more privatisation

by Ian Shires on 11 January, 2018

I get really angry when I hear people regurgitating the hype the media is pumping out about the NHS not being fit for purpose.

What an insult to the hard working people who are working long hours to provide a service under very difficult circumstances.

There’s a method behind this constant drip, drip of comment undermining the credibility of our NHS. There are those who want to see a shift towards more privatisation and ultimately to an insurance based one. We need to do all we can to prevent the further shift towards privatisation. Any shift to an insurance based health service would favour the very rich at the expense of the rest of us.
