Finally the BBC realises!

The BBC has finally realised that NHS Walk-In Centres are being closed. I've written several blogs about this. The closures have been pushed by Andrew Lansley's GP friends.

It all boils down to less service availability for patients. Have you tried to get an appointment with your GP recently? The Government claim the services have not been cut. Well all I can say is they've not been in the street themselves. They are liars!

Signs of further UK NHS destruction

Further evidence of the Andrew Lansley programme of destruction for the NHS emerge:

Hospital waiting list "recategorisation" 12th June 2012; patients are being dropped off waiting lists for operations.

NHS Care being rationed. BBC report 19th June 2012; access to some operations being restricted.

This will all get worse when the control of funding is passed to the committees of freelance General Practitioners under the present Andrew Lansley plans.

Young heroes

We held the "Baby Shower" for my son's wife at our house yesterday. It went really well. It is great to see the generation we raised coming through to parenthood. It turns out one of the guys at the party (in his 20's) is a film and TV star. One of the young ladies who was also there is a star of a London West End musical. They both friends of my son. True to my fuddy duddy lifestyle I didn't recognise their names or careers until my son told me afterwards. It is great to see these young people building their careers.

UK NHS cuts.

Another sign of the deterioration of the UK's NHS care under the Andrew Lansley plan. A GP practice chops patients because they are too expensive. These people are close supporters of Lansley.
