There’s so much negativity in the press, on TV and in government statements at the moment. Every imperfection of the NHS is magnified and held up for public ‘horror’ – a clear strategy to try to undermine public affection for our National Health Service.
So it seems like a good time to re-publish this post, which shows what a real ‘horror story’ looks like, to remind us that the NHS, though imperfect, is a boon and a blessing no matter how hard those who hate it try to denigrate it.
But the real horror is that the process of removing the NHS as a public institution with care provided ‘free at the point of need’, begins tomorrow, 1 April, as the new commissioning processes and enforced inclusion of private providers kick in.
If you’d like to help defend the NHS, there’s a very practical way to do so. Please take a look at www.ccgwatch.org.uk/launching-ccgwatch-org-uk-please-help-crowdfund-the-fight-against-nhs-privatisation/
