Video clips of NHS (England) rationing

Here are some recent news clips with evidence for NHS (England) rationing, and some views. Charlie Cooper in The Independent sums it up on 21st June: Doctors’ leader warns of more NHS rationing unless funding freeze ends. This implies a simplistic short term suggestion of more money, and NHSreality agrees that more is needed, but not from direct taxation. We need overt co-payments related to means and income….. This needs time and debate to organise and agree, and we are not yet beginning the debate because of political fear and denial. Gagged politicians with perverse incentives….The conspirators in this are the media: constantly short term themselves, and easily distracted, they rarely sustain a debate on any ideology.

About Roger Burns - retired GP

I am a retired GP and medical educator. I have supported patient participation throughout my career, and my practice, St Thomas; Surgery, has had a longstanding and active Patient Participation Group (PPG). I support the idea of Community Health Councils, although I feel they should be funded at arms length from government. I have taught GP trainees for 30 years, and been a Programme Director for GP training in Pembrokeshire 20 years. I served on the Pembrokeshire LHG and LHB for a total of 10 years. I completed an MBA in 1996, and I along with most others, never had an exit interview from any job in the NHS! I completed an MBA in 1996, and was a runner up for the Adam Smith prize for economy and efficiency in government in that year. This was owing to a suggestion (St Thomas' Mutual) that practices had incentives for saving by being allowed to buy rationed out services in the following year.
