With the proper united will behind the N.H.S, many problems could be ironed out; but Thursday's Tory Question Time M.P, Business Secretary Sajid Javid, concentrated on how the N.H.S. will only improve and be maintained if the British economy is in a good place.
His political spin did not carry much clout with the audience or viewers at home.
The problem for the Tories is British people are not as stupid as they believe. They see money wasted and spent to fulfil the Tory agenda and know that money is available when the Tories want to spend.
Javid seemed confident Thursday that the N.H.S. will be able to cope during the coming winter months and not fail but that is a fantasy.
Money promised to the N.H.S. by the Tory government has yet to be delivered as promised.
Locally Friday Hull Royal Infirmary Accident and Emergency Department has declared a black alert. Such an alert is given when the situation is critical and the affected department or hospital cannot cope.
The Hull Daily Mail reports Friday “More than 1,300 patients, many of them with serious and complex health conditions, have been rushed to the emergency department (ED) since Monday. Now, with the department still under intense pressure, the hospital is drafting in additional staff to cope with the numbers of desperately sick and injured people coming through its doors.”
People are being advised not to attend the department unless they have no other alternative such as a G.P. out of hour’s clinic.
But the bad news for local people and staff is that high winds have brought a cold spell of weather into the area today.
If M.P’s hope the N.H.S. can weather such storms they may be clutching at straws.
Junior doctors are the lifeblood of N.H.S. hospitals, clinics and doctor’s surgeries. A row over new junior doctors contracts that the Tories have threatened to impose has resulted in a vote for strike action in December.
If Javid and other Tory ministers think the N.H.S. can fully function currently they need to think again.
And the big losers will be you and I not politicians who can afford private healthcare to beat the system!
