Right folks, no sitting on the sidelines. Your healthcare is far too important. When I shout in social media about the damage being done to the NHS by this current UK government, I sometimes get the impression that some of you out there either think this is all a fuss over nothing, or is about self-interest on the part of the medical profession. Jezza is RELYING on you thinking that - he's spent considerable time on media manipulation and spin, and is currently being opportunist in times of austerity, to help consolidate that impression.
Don't let government grind down those trying to secure the welfare of you and your nearest and dearest. The NHS is a superb healthcare provider (as judged by independent assessors) but this Tory government would much rather use ill health to line the pockets of private healthcare companies at the expense of those who can't afford private healthcare, and with cavalier disregard for uniform quality of care. Public sector healthcare professionals are those who stand in their way and therefore must be vilified (to undermine public confidence in them) and demoralised so that they move abroad or out of the public sector. It's hard to think of one group of healthcare individuals or NHS providers which has escaped a campaign of negative propaganda.
