    The NHS

    Should it be privatised and services contracted out? What do you think? How about a debate?

    Absolutely not. Think it was a bad mistake contracting out the cleaning services.

    What I would like to see is more emphasis on preventive measures, though I don't pretend to know how it would work. Should tobacco be banned?

    I'm more in favour of taking the NHS out of the hands of Whitehall and handing control back to the Individual hospitals.

    The sad fact is that the primary care services are already going to the highest bidder. Wound care and tissue viability are being scouped up by dressing manufacturers for example. Health visitors are being clumped into social care. The change is already happening and noone knows about it. I will look up some things for you. I feel the issue needs exposing.

    As you already know... I have two sisters and a niece who are in the NHS. My sister Karen is at Brighton County as an A & E Staff nurse and
    Shirley is a Staff nurse in Queens Hospital in Romford. My niece is at Worthing Hospital in Sussex. They are sick to the back teeth of the restrictions put upon them that they believe sometimes stops them actually nursing. What do you suggest?

    There is nothing we can do. All I can suggest is that no matter who pays their wage, they are still nurses. Do what we can with what we got. Nurse led clinics are starting to take off big time! All we need to do is secure the capital from the government and based upon strategic evidence, hang out our own shingle. Open for business. I plan something along those lines in the cardio-pulmonary area, once I find my feet as a nurse at the Medway A & E for a couple of years.

    I could have done with you when I had my pulmery Embolism. The nurses were not impressed with my dragging my machine for Heperin along to the toilet for a cigg with me.

    No No No No No No.

    What kind of idiot would want a privatised health service? Sixty one years ago the people of this country their feeling felt about this I find it hard to credit anyone thinks privatised medicine is a good thing-just look at the states who would want to copy them?
