    I understand what you are saying. The point is, the process of contracting out services has already begun. And it's been done with the least amount of public attention as can be.

    Yeah sounds about right. Like the folks who take their chest drains outside with them to smoke.
    I would have been more worried about you dislodging the clot and sending that to your lungs. Priorities in that place sound a bit skewed to me.

    It was on my left lung. I just have to say that the staff and all concerned in the emergency ward were nothing short of excellence. The Paramedics without doubt saved my life. I had just had major surgery so they suspected a pulmery embolism correctly at once and treated me in the ambulance on route with Heperin.

    Re: The NHS

    There are, I think, two issues which the general public conflates. Privatizing out is one, and national care free at the point of delivery for cradle-to-grave health cover which is the other. They have nothing, as far as I can see, to do with each other.

    There have been slips in the second. Dental provision is a central health concern and that's completely messed up. Prescription charges have sneaked in and up though they're still capped at £110 a year per person regardless of the volume of prescriptions which is a way of stopping it becoming a total outrage. It's still wrong.

    But making the system as cost effective as possible, given the unchanged definition of what it performs, is a political decision that has nothing to do with cutting back on performance.

    It's not an informed post Raven, but perhaps if you sink your teeth into it I'll get an idea of why I can't see the wood for the trees.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    That's because they know what the public reaction is likely to be. there's a lot wrong with the NHS but privatising it isn't the way to go.

    Whilst centralising the administration might be dragging the efficiency of the whole down, paying dividends and making profit the motive for existence is not the answer.

    Keep central purchasing but take the administration back to the point of supply - make those that do responsible for the doing because they are the ones who know what is required.
