More Money For NHS

More Money For NHS, NOT The Solution!

Dear Sir/Madam,
Just how many more times is it necessary to reiterate the message that the NHS is NOT underfunded; just wastefully run, badly managed and haemorrhaging billions. They may as well just burn money to keep the hospitals warm! [KM Letters]
MPs and NHS management have managed to elevate the NHS to ‘sacred cow’ status, which they believe puts it above criticism and any form of close scrutiny and so the ‘bottomless pit’ syndrome continues!
Recent official figures have highlighted the high cost of ‘Health Tourism’, the hundreds of millions in wasted drugs, the £700 million on temporary staff, equipment bought at top prices, unecessary operations, fat pensions and rewards for failure, etc., etc.,  – they’re even recruiting ambulance drivers from Australia.
It doesn’t take much digging to unearth billions of pounds in waste, such as hospitals built on PFI costing some ten times the original cost. [PFI is like a mortgage!] Nobody seems to have the guts to tell the truth about the appalling state of the NHS, or to halt
the gravy train of waste.
Yours faithfully
