This is what I was afraid would happen, and it is an inevitable consequence of the war of attrition being waged against the NHS since 2010 by the Government.
Our wonderful health service is being systematically destroyed from the top down by heartless, career driven politicians who care more about maintaining power at all costs than they do about the health of the nation’s people. This is entirely their fault. The NHS is in the midst of its tightest financial squeeze ever. A&E wait times are at a record high. Winter pressures have never been worse, leading to the cancellation of ALL routine, non urgent operations at dozens of NHS Trusts across the country for an entire month - And now people are dying in hospital corridors because staff are lacking the proper resources to deal with this crisis. This is untenable and something has to change immediately.
There is a single point of failure here and it isn’t the immigrants that we love to use as scapegoats for all of our problems - This is the fault of Jeremy Hunt and the Conservative government he is a part of. They have blood on their hands. The fact that Jeremy Hunt kept his job as Health Secretary during the reshuffle on Monday is just a complete slap in the face. He’s overseen the harshest cuts in the history of the NHS during his tenure. He’s pushed PFI contracts for external contractors. Junior doctors had unfair new contracts imposed by him, and staged the first EVER strikes in the history of the health service last year due to being overworked and underfunded. Medical staff at the highest levels routinely speak out and call the situation untenable due to their compromised ability to care for patients. They’ve been routinely dismissed and ignored and now people are dying. I’m just so depressed and angry - This is a beautiful health service, one of the only true socialist and egalitarian concepts this country has left - And it is being set up to fail by this lizard scumfuck who wants to see it privatized.
Dear Theresa May - Sack Jeremy Hunt. Give the NHS the money it needs, and then do the entire nation a favour by calling another election so the voters of this country can finally consign your evil, disgusting party to the political oblivion that it is so deserving of.
