The fabric of Britain as we know it is being ripped apart. So much is changing, almost behind our backs, we haven't got time to notice what is happening to us. And it is happening fast.

Save Our Free Health Service

We have until the 16th May to petition the Government to drop their Health Bill and call for a re-think.

For clues as to where the Health Bill will lead us in its present form, watch this Panorama report on America's underclass. Most ended up on the streets due to healthcare costs.

  1. I don't support the Coalition but to claim that after the current reforms the British healthcare system will come close to resembling the American one displays almost complete ignorance at best and is outright lying at worst

    1. I disagree, Lauren. The agenda clearly is to run the NHS as an umbrella brand for multiple private services, which will have to be profitable and have to compete against one another. This will lead to even less "joined up" healthcare and to scarcity of services which are hard to profit from.

      this Telegraph article, among many similar ones.

    2. From another Frother:

      "There's definitely an argument that once the health service starts to be dismantled it can never be rebuilt. There is also an argument that where GPs are responsible for commissioning decisions stop being made on clinical need and start being made on more political lines (not that they aren't already but more so).

      "A better argument is that once the goal posts of the system start being moved there is the potential for them to keep moving and the ultimate position is one similar to that seen in the USA where sick people cannot get health insurance and so cannot get healthcare."

      Perhaps it would be helpful if you could explain your viewpoint in more detail, Lauren?
