The Mirror reports that Heads of NHS trusts in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough blame patients for damanding more from their services without taking responsibility for their own health and wellbeing.

Of course there is a massive problem with the ‘fat and old’ monopolizing NHS resources. Sadly, under the current rules, the NHS is being abused and the UK public are not getting effective value for money.

It’s time for politicians to come clean and replace the NHS with a best practice public healthcare system based on France, Germany, Italy or Singapore.

It looks like Cambridgeshire and Peterborough need some people power?

  1. Dealing with self-inflicted illness is always going to be difficult, and while my gut agrees with the idea of “tough love”, I know that there are a lot of issues to consider, such as depression as a cause, to name only one of many. I also cringe at the sense of entitlement that can be found in some places but deciding who’s ‘genuine’ and ‘deserving’ and who isn’t can be controversial and much more difficult than seems at first.
    Quick cures are usually short sighted and not as efficient as one hopes.
    Much food for thought

  2. The Heads of these NHS Trusts and Dr Alf are right,too many of their patients are grossly overweight and take too little responsibility for their own health and too many pensioners abuse the NHS on a daily basis imagining that there is a bottomless pit of money when in fact the NI fund became insolvent nearly 17 years ago in 2000. The NHS now runs on a mixture of Petroleum Revenue Tax(at risk because of electric cars, hybrids, LPG and greater fuel efficiency as manufacturers try to combat pollution and “Climate Change”),money plundered from the “Good Causes” fund of the National Lottery and increased ticket prices for the National Lottery.

    The NHS itself is badly run,not fit for purpose and employs more people than any other organisation in Europe,rivalled in size by only the Indian State Railway System and the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army.

    At its head are grossly overpaid and incompetent managers who bully,use gagging orders and when discovered or fired come back as highly paid interims and then go on to perpetuate the uproar,confusion and mismanagement whilst improving nothing.
    The NHS needs to be replaced with a new fit for purpose structure modelled along German and Singaporean lines and incorporating all the functions of local authority Adult Social Care.

    To create the new model interims from outside the NHS need to be used because the Big 4,McKinseys and NHS improvement initiatives have not worked and will never work because they are misconceived,muddle headed and rooted in ostrich like dogma.

    Grossly overweight pensioners, Adult Social Care recipients,recreational drug users, dole bludgers seeking PIP(Personal Independence Payments), smokers, vapers and the malingering workshy all need to be given the hard word and cleared out of GP surgeries and A and E units where they gum up the system and cause genuinely sick people to be missed or treated too late
