So now we know that the NHS has allegedly corrupt officials and poor mortality and cancer treatment outcomes, as well, thanks to tireless investigative journalism by the Daily Telegraph in this article brought to us by Dr Alf.

It is time that the guilty men and woman were brought to book but doubtless the apologists in the Guardian and the BBC will say that this represents “a few bad apples”, is an invention of the “right wing press”, is “not representative of the NHS as a whole”, is an “exaggeration” of the true state of the NHS, that it ignores the “excellent work being done by hardworking nurses and doctors in the NHS”.

These siren voices need to be faced down and the malfeasance rooted out as the Government’s battle with the NHS and the medical profession becomes joined.

This time, we need no “blinking” on the part of either Jeremy Hunt, the Health Minister nor David Cameron, who is getting a little too relaxed by taking most of August off on holiday.

The opposition may well be in disarray and the Government may well have a “mandate” to reduce the deficit but this is the time to be relentless and put the enemies of progress and those who would defraud the public purse for gain to the sword.

That means pressing them hard, giving the corrupt no time to breathe, no time to regroup and no time to hide their misdeeds.

The bank accounts of those involved and all those around them need to be exposed and monies not accounted for recovered as would happen with a fraudulent benefit recipient.
