Boss at cancer scandal NHS trust had no experience running hospitals – Telegraph

This is my fourth blog today featuring the growing crisis in the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). This article published by the Telegraph is a MUST READ in my view. Check it out!

via Boss at cancer scandal NHS trust had no experience running hospitals – Telegraph.

The Telegraph article highlights that the boss of of an NHS trust with a disastrous cancer record had no experience of running hospitals. One of my other blogs today’s features latest OECD evidence with the UK’s cancer care being bottom quartile stuff. This is all a very long way from the UK’s NHS being the gold standard of public healthcare.

Why are the political classes keeping the mythe of the NHS going?

The other two articles were:

Personally, I struggle to see how UK Prime Minister, David Cameron can reschedule his diary to visit China, when the NHS is widely expected to collapse this Winter, especially in theAccident and Emergency departments (A&E).

  2. Dr Alf and the Daily Telegraph have once again highlighted the NHS for what it is,a bloated monolithic structure,run by incompetents and the unqualified and out of their depth,impervious to reform and in urgent need of replacement.
    The figures for NHS cancer treatment outcomes being the worst in Western Europe are not new because they form part of claims data and mortality statistics furnished to the Government Actuaries Department every year by life assurance companies and Composite insurers selling life cover.
    Dr Alf asks why the political classes keep the myth of the NHS going.
    It is because they fear taking on the medical profession and because the NHS is the largest employer in Western Europe.
    Replacing it and staffing it properly would result in major unemployment in marginal constituencies and would upset the drug companies who are a powerful political lobby.
