#NHS ” Talk About Not Being Able to Tell the Truth”

#AceHealthNews says according to Nadine Dorris the NHS is in good hands, with the Conservatives in charge. Of course Labour and many of the of public, do not agree.

My colleague Kev sent me this post and his words says it all ” Talk about not being able to own up to anything” but then what really is  behind people thinking the NHS has no money, well let me answer this the only way l know how, having spent over 5 years trying to understand the system.

It all, starts one day when one elderly person goes into decline, and you need to consider their healthcare, and the more you get embroiled in the system, the more you realise, that is really simple!

There is plenty of money, it is all ring fenced and this allows all essential services to be starved, of funding.  

This creates what has come to be called a “Two Tier System” whereby the people who need essential care, who cannot understand the system, do not get it, and those that “Do Not Take No For An Answer” such as myself, can get what other people already have got with a little work.

Though there is a much deeper reason for starving our   NHS and that is essential services, can be farmed out to a “Third Party Contractor” this present Government has turned this into an art, and can make us mere mortal’s ,believe their rhetoric.

Their favourite words are watch-words – such as `it is for your own good’  or `we are looking after your children’s future’ making people believe they really care – `they do not’ – all they care about is putting in place, the legacy of `Maggie Thatcher‘ and finishing what she started.

The Way is Contractor’s

p style=”text-align:center;”>These companies who you already know or have heard of are called names like Serco  that according to a Guardian Report in April 2013 

It was almost two years ago that whistle-blowers exposed the failings of the privatised out-of-hours GP service run by Serco in Cornwall. Yesterday, finally, they were vindicated. The powerful parliamentary public accounts committee summoned Serco and the NHS body responsible for commissioning them, the Cornwall primary care trust, and gave them the roasting they deserved for a culture of “lying and cheating” and for “shocking” inadequacies in writing and monitoring the contract. The committee had asked the National Audit Office to report on the service after revelations in the Guardian. Members from all parties were excoriating in their judgment of Serco’s behaviour and the inability of the trust to hold the company, which has £2.4bn of public-sectorcontracts in the UK, to account.

The bigger question, however, is whether NHS patients will be any better protected in future as more services are put out to tender. Serco’s health business is growing rapidly – it has £300m worth of contracts in the sector. Other than a dent to its reputation, it has suffered no penalty. It has not been fined for lying and breaching its contract, nor has it lost the job. Its public-sector business just keeps getting bigger as its share price rises. If a private company behaved this way to another private company over a contract, it would find itself in court. Not so when rapacious corporates (the committee’s description) do business with the public sector. A small sorry is enough.

Contractors and Subcontractors pdf   according to National Audit Office the use of contractors and sub-contractors is increasing in the NHS, yet evidence suggests that a third of trusts believe they have limited control over their contractors’ health and safety. 

These people are this Governments `Chosen Few’ and they are the ones who will support the Government and in so doing will get their “Earthly Reward” of these large “Taxpayer Funded” contracts.

Personally l do not see  this as good news for the country and especially the NHS as this leads to that “Two Tier System l told you about, but this time it will be Private Healthcare V’s Free at Point of Delivery.

Private Healthcare Companies Are Too Big To Fail

Standards in social are being undermined because the handful of private

companies which dominated public sector contracts are deemed too big to fail, according to a report by Social Enterprise UK. The report’s authors said that Britain faces “another banking crisis” in the care sector unless charities and social enterprises are given a greater slice of the market.

Ace News Desk: Our take on the story based on:

” Banks Being Too Big To Fail”

There was a phrase someone time ago, that l remember well and it went like this:    ” The  Bigger You Are The Harder You Fall” but we live in times of austerity whereby the rich do not get touched by the hardship of the poor!

Although we have a broken country and the 2008 crisis led us to the brink, we never saw any bank of size fail! Oh initially they were stating that they were unable to trade, due mainly to liquidity. But this liquidity existed in one country at the time, as they moved their funds around! The country in 2008 that brought us the brink was the United States Of America and they had a street that was ” Walled” like some ancient wall of Jericho, and we all know what happened to that eventually, but not now!

But in this global world of cross fertilisation of currency and ideas, it was not long until we were to witness, that what ever happens across the pond, eventually arrives on the United Kingdoms shores!  Then like a greedy monster, it started to devour every financial product insight, just to protect itself!

This was to continue to “ricochet” backwards and forwards for three whole years, with the “blame culture” evident and Wall Street putting up the barriers to protect themselves! The words “Too Big To Fail” became the “Watchwords of the Day” and these monoliths of investment were looking like they may tumble! But they did something, that no other establishments had ever done! They had protected themselves by designing a system, that would stop all comers getting beyond their firewalls, these ” Seven Wall Street Banks” were protected by protecting each other! They defied all rules of “Financial Regulatory Controls” in place at the time, and did not fail!

Now fours years on it is the turn of the ” Healthcare Industry” to become “Too Big To Fail” and then as more of these massive, uncontrolled corporations and institutions, see it works!
