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.
