This is an excellent, must-read, article by Simon Jenkins, published in the Guardian.

It is time for the political classes to come clean with the UK electorate – the NHS is not sustainable in its current form. Jenkins is right to suggest payment for front-line treatments.

Personally, I believe that the NHS should be scrapped and replaced with a new public healthcare system, based on global best-practice, like in Singapore and Italy.

Apart from the bureaucracy of the NHS, and its poor record in terms of international health outcomes and cost effectiveness, there is a need to address the abuse by the public.

Shouldn’t the mainstream media be challenging front-line politicians to come clean about the NHS? Also surely UK politicians can learn from Obamcare too?

Thoughts?
