According to the Telegraph NHS bosses are being paid by drug firms to influence the choice of drugs.
This blog has been very critical of the management of the NHS over the last four years and has repeatedly argued that it is in a state of permanent decline with a cancer at its center. Politicians are not ready to hold the NHS and its many stakeholders properly to account – this is a weakness in UK politics as well as public healthcare.
Decisions about choice of drugs really matter, with the UK having one of the worst records in Europe for cancer outcomes in Europe.
Surely, the only way to weed out corruption at the NHS is to send the guilty to jail with long sentences and withhold pensions and severance pay for NHS employees who leave because of criminal practices?
Also surely drug companies who participate in corrupt practices must be punished by sending the guilty to jail and massive fines?
