You only have to compare funding per head, for health services abroad to see that the Conservative Government have been starving the NHS of funding for years.
This is a deliberate act, which is intended to produce the 'inevitability' of private health care as the only alternative.
They've already made a start on this by fragmenting the NHS throughout the country. Add to that the rules that require NHS boards to offer service contracts to private firms.
The results of that ongoing fiasco are only just coming to public notice hundreds-of-patients-potentially-harmed-by-undelivered-nhs-mail-says-n
The question is, how can private firms make a profit out of providing these services, and if they can, why can't the NHS do the same job and keep the profit for the NHS?
