I think both patients and healthcare professionals have quite simply had enough when it comes to discussions on how to save the NHS.

GP’s, Nurses and admin staff all work extremely hard, and patients pay their taxes for their healthcare. The government however are not holding up their end of the deal when it comes to managing their finances, listening to the public. In turn they promise false expectations that will double the trouble.

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) has published a report which contains stark warnings that the NHS is not on track to achieve the efficiency savings that the government is seeking from it – £22billion to plug the £30billion gap in its finances by 2020. [1]

Now they are going so far as to say that the NHS has three options:

  • new charges, such as a charge for patients to use some services such as a flat rate contributory fee to see the doctor (including GP’s) or paying a proportion of treatment costs.
  • reduce services
  • increase funding

Instead they are taking more from those who did not ask for this problem. In each aspect they are suggesting they take away. Because the only option that gives (increase funding) just asks where will the extra money come from? Especially if they are in extreme financial trouble.

The debates and discussions on what would be best for the NHS and GP’s have been endless. We have exhausted ourselves and seen professionals defeated, without having their voice heard.

Realistically we understand the Government needs to listen to those in the environment and start gauging their spend with those who know where it is needed most.

Let us know your thoughts on this.
