NHS Future & Elderly Care ?

What is the Future of the NHS ?

What is the Future for Elderly Care ?

The decisions shall affect us ALL in one way or another !


One suggestion is






This happened in 2010

"NHS cuts mean £400 less per person in England over next four years


The health service in England will have £400 (€455; $620) less on average to spend on every man, woman, and child over the next four years because of cutbacks planned for the NHS, a campaigning group has estimated.

The group, Health Emergency, claims that the savings will be made by cutting staff, reducing numbers of hospital beds, reducing the capacity of emergency departments, slashing GPs’ consultation times, and scrapping other primary care services.

It says that seven of the 10 strategic health authorities in England have published plans for cutting a combined total of £15bn from their budgets up to 2014. Similar cuts from the remaining three authorities (North East, Yorkshire and Humber, and East of England) would bring the total to £20bn, averaging almost £400 per head for every …

It is strange is it not ? THAT our dear Past Governments ENCOURAGED SMOKING ! - it LARGELY FUNDED THE NHS !

Sadly, Smokers lost out in many ways, high Endowment premiums for life Insurance linked to savings/investments and Mortgages - not forgetting Pensions (the Pension Companies stood to make a fortune out of SMOKERS 0 BECAUSE MANY DIED EARLY SO DID NOT DRAW A PENSION AT ALL !)

SMOKERS always paid more for Private Health Care - and yet, they are most likely to not be able to s#afford Private Health Care when they needed it (for illness related to smoking) or DIED EARLY THUS the Actuaries ensured a goodly balance of smokers on the Companies books - for bigger Profits


The NHS is NOW is DIRE STRAITS ... Money for Nothing ... will be its Swansong

Yet, Many of us here will feel the impact.


Is it going to be BANKRUPTED by FAILING Health Foundations ?

Then sold off to the highest bidder for Privatization ?

Will that impact on all the NHS Consultants who get the basic (very high Consultancy Pay & Pension now, for 2 or 3 days at the NHS) and triple that in Private Healthcare ? oooh! dear, so very sad ... my heart bleeds lumpy custard !

Ok whats the solution ?

We couldn't put prisoners in nursing homes - it would breech their human rights!
