This is an amazing article from the Guardian/Observer. It’s a MUST READ, in my view. Check it out!

NHS competition holds up creation of specialist cancer treatment centres | Politics | The Observer.

The article appears to blame delayed roll-out of cancer care improvements on the Government’s NHS competition policies.

In my mind, this article is pitched clearly at the Guardian’s readership who are typically anti greater privatization of the NHS.

Surely it’s time to stop squabbling over  ideology?

Let’s face the reality. Because of Government cock-ups, this Winter, fewer people will get quality Accident and Emergency care. Also Britain will continue to be denied the levels of cancer treatment available in the rest of Europe.

From the vantage of a political blogger, I am increasingly concerned that the UK’s main-stream media is inflaming the UK healthcare crisis, pandering to

ideology  and sponsors.

Surely, it is obvious that it not in the UK’s national interest to keep throwing good money after bad on the National Health Service?

Are there any UK politicians, or mainstream journalists, brave enough to argue that the NHS must be scrapped and replaced by a new best-practice model of public healthcare?

Any thoughts?
