It’s time to realize that the NHS is not a ‘religion’

WHAT do NHS diversity managers do all day for their £40,000 salaries?

Are ‘equality officers’ really worth their inflated £90,387 a year?

Why isn’t this money spent on doctors and nurses instead?

More specifically, why should defaulting taxpayers have to pay for these bureaucratic parasites?

The NHS has exploded from a cradle-to-grave healthcare system into a gilded monster that devours ever-larger chunks of our wages in return for ever-poorer healthcare.

Billions of pounds, to quote a well-known Prime Minister, are “thrown against the wall” by an inexplicable army of commuters who shirk responsibility and blame.

Faceless managers squander vast sums of money on tea-and-cookie meetings while refusing to reform a seedy colossus that’s perpetually on the brink of collapse

The NHS eats up 40p of every £1 in tax – mouth-watering £190bn for England alone this year.

On Tuesday it snatched a further £13billion from our payroll packages thanks to Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak – money we’ll never see again.

The National Insurance tax hike will reportedly cover future Social Security costs stemming from the disastrous Covid outages of the botched NHS and Health Service England.

“Our reforms will end once and for all the cruel lottery of rising and unpredictable care costs and bring the NHS and social care closer together,” said the Prime Minister. He is deceived.

The extra billions will simply be absorbed by the giant NHS sponge.

As a senior Treasury Secretary told me at the end of the lockdown, “We threw money at it, just threw money!”

Among other things, he spoke of the £38billion for track and trace, the £8billion wasted on faulty and unused personal protective equipment and the billions more to extend the furlough beyond last summer.

There are no plans to get any value for all the new money — and in three years there will be nothing left for promised welfare, which will require billions more.

Taxpayers are now dealing with a disaster Cost of Living Crisis wondering why and who is to blame.

Unless Boris finds answers quickly, the Tories face a hammer blow in next month’s town hall polls and the forthcoming general election.

Forget the tragedy of Ukraine. Voters faced with double-digit inflation and food shortages will decide issues close to home.

Yet as families tighten their belts, the public sector blob is still splashing out on their cash.

The NHS is offering non-jobs to diversity and equality leaders at four times the average wage.


What will they offer 12 million patients stranded on waiting lists?

We pay more but get less.

The bills are going up, but the queues are going up.

The pandemic is over, but GPs still refuse to see patients face-to-face.

Everyone has a story about a friend or relative who has waited years for potentially life-threatening surgery.

I have a mate who was diagnosed with kidney disease before Covid arrived and is still awaiting major surgery.

The NHS has long been a stark reminder of public sector waste and inefficiency.

Attempts at reform by governments of all parties inevitably come to nothing.

Only a crisis, some said, would trigger the changes needed.

Well, we’re in a crisis now.

NHS blackouts are sweeping us like a tsunami.

Shrewsbury Hospital The Trust provided the proof last week by revealing that hundreds of mothers and babies died needlessly in its “care”.


It was a horrifying story.

But Shrewsbury is just one of many hospital trusts with blood on their hands.

Yes, most hospitals and staff provide quality care.

But still more die unnecessarily from cancer and other diseases than in some poorer countries.

Cases of proven negligence, incompetence and poor hygiene are all too often covered up.

Patients are actually afraid to go to the hospital.

Some people would rather stay home sick than risk a hospital infection or surgery, with the NHS bracing for a shocking £83B in future compensation claims.

Other countries in Europe and Australia are using health insurance coverage to balance demands on ever-hungry government providers.

The UK has tried to co-opt the private healthcare sector to ease waiting lists.

Each proposal is greeted with rants from unions, the Labor Party and health organizations, with accusations of ‘selling out the NHS’.

It’s time to realize and accept that our hospitals are not the envy of the world.

The National Health Service is not a “religion”.

It is deeply flawed and urgently needs to be addressed – for the health and well-being of all of us. It’s time to realize that the NHS is not a ‘religion’
