A few months ago I wrote to the Star with a statement that I believed this government wanted to give permission for hospitals to reserve up to a half of our NHS facilities for private patients.
This leaves the vast majority to join the lengthening queues for access to the remaining ‘free’ care still available.
Now watch for an announcement that present funding for NHS patients will be cut back leaving those who cannot afford private insurance (or even get it because of pre-conditions) to be given a budget service.
This would be the failed American model imposed on us by a Prime Minister who promised he would never do it.
I believe that the recent chaos over budgets and the railways will be nothing when we see the ruination of the nation’s healthcare.
