How the NHS kills 100 people a day

Looking at the newspapers recently, it seems that journalists are finally realising that New Labour doubling the NHS budget from £45bn to over £105bn a year hasn’t given us a better health service. I have a copy of a little-known NHS internal report which estimates that around 34,000 people a year die unnecessarily in NHS hospitals – that’s almost 100 every day. The report also calculates that another 25,000 are unnecessarily permanently disabled. Some are as a result of medical mistakes, but most are due to appalling care on the wards. One hospital alone, the Staffordshire NHS Trust was responsible for over 1,000 deaths. Naturally, the chief executive was allowed to retire with a massive pay-off and increase in his pension.

Under the lying buffoon Brown, the number of managers in the NHS doubled from 20,000 to 40,000 so there are now more managers than hospital medical consultants. Moreover, the number of hospital beds has been reduced. Twelve years ago there were about 12 beds per manager, now there are about 4. The NHS is a national scandal and disgrace. Thousands die unnecessarily and managers cover up the scale of the disaster to protect their own careers. If you want to find out what’s really happening in the NHS, you should read my book Who Cares? which I wrote with Amanda Steane whose husband was one of the 35,000.
