Are the NHS’s problems mostly self-inflicted?

NHS bosses and medics are bleating and howling about how this winter’s NHS crisis will be the worst ever. And, of course, they’re demanding many billions more of our money. But I’d like to humbly suggest that many of the NHS’s problems are either caused by our worse-than-useless politicians or sometimes self-inflicted by the NHS itself.

Here are just a few:

  • Sacking 40,000 care workers – the government and NHS forced care homes to sack around 40,000 care workers who refused to take the ‘miracle’ vaccines which the politicians and NHS bosses claimed were ‘safe’ and ‘effective’ when they were actually dangerous and largely ineffective for most of the population. This has caused a lack of capacity to look after around 13,000 ‘bed blockers’ who are sufficiently healthy to be discharged from hospital were there carers available. This bottleneck has led to huge delays admitting new patients to hospitals, ambulances queuing up for hours at A&E and hundreds (perhaps thousands) of unnecessary deaths
  • Making nursing a uni degree subject – from the little I understand, the RCN (Royal College of Nursing) had been pushing for years to make nursing a 3-year university-based degree course rather than a much shorter (40 weeks?) in a teaching hospital partly on-the-job diploma. The RCN did this to make nursing a ‘profession’ and thus ensure higher status and pay for nurses. This has had at least two negative results. Firstly, many people, who would make excellent nurses but who are not necessarily academically-inclined or excited about the thought of incurring debts of up to £50,000, have been put off becoming nurses. And secondly, now that so many nurses are university graduates, they feel that some of the jobs traditionally done by nurses are beneath their status and so spend part of their time discussing their social/love lives and the latest “I’m a celebrity” while lowly healthcare assistants do some of the jobs nurses used to do
  • The army of managers – about 20 years ago there were around 25,000 managers in the NHS and around 8 hospital beds per manager. Now we have about 38,000 managers and fewer hospital beds so there are about 3.4 hospital beds per manager. Just a back-of-a-fag-packet calculation suggests that the extra 13,000 managers (who were not necessary 20 years ago) are costing us close to £2bn a year. For many years I was married to a cancer surgeon in one of the Scandinavian countries. There they had a hospital administration department to handle stuff like salaries, HR and purchasing. But the medics ran their own departments with no need for a bunch of expensive, time-wasting managers in every department. Moreover, while bleating about lacking money, the NHS is still busy hiring ever more Diversity, Inclusion and Equity managers at up to £70,000 per manager per year
  • Pensions for senior medics – taxation on pensions is such that it doesn’t pay senior medics to take on extra shifts. Moreover, thousands have been forced to take early retirement to avoid massive tax liabilities on their defined benefit pensions. When the NHS is claiming it lacks experienced medics, it’s not a great idea to force out the most experienced
  • British lives don’t matter – then we have the invasion of our country by millions of Third-worlders all demanding and getting priority medical care and many of whom have exotic diseases which had long since disappeared from our country. Plus, of course, some Third-worlders enrich us with their much-admired tradition of consanguineous marriage which hugely increases the likelihood of children having lifelong disabilities whose treatment and care we have to pay for
I couldn’t have said it better

I wanted to write a blog today. But the brilliant Neil Oliver said everything I would have liked to say much more incisively than I ever could:

    The title of this blog applies to most problems. They are all created by our politicians – climate crisis, fake pandemic, dangerous vaccines, energy shortages, inflation, wars. The problem we face is what to do about it all and I have yet to see any solution offered. I’m getting to the stage where I don’t want to read about it anymore because of lack of any ideas on how to deal with it. It reminds me of the old Irish joke of visitors asking directions and the reply was “if I were you, I wouldn’t start from here”.

    I have watched two Edward Dutton videos with him discussing the decline of intelligence. His conclusion is that we will go through hell before we come out of this nightmare. Not something to look forward to. It is just a matter of how long collapse will take before recovery can start. He also made a point that confirms one of my views which is that intelligent people tend to be very trusting. I’ve looked at it from the view that experts see themselves as trustworthy, most probably are, and therefore they trust other experts. It astonished me that the medical profession didn’t see the problems with a clearly experimental genetic treatment being passed off as a vaccine. But when their job depends on complying with government dogma is it surprising? Academia is being corrupted with political dogma and on GB News last night a mathematician was talking about this. Going back to Dutton, one of his videos started with him saying that we know something is seriously wrong when we don’t know how to define a woman. Nothing gets more fundamental than this. We are in deep trouble.

    It is beginning to look as if all these problems were planned but what the objective really is remains unclear. This weekend I watched an interview with Bertrand Russell from 1952. He favoured a federal world government as the only way of avoiding wars and achieving a peaceful existence and nations would not be allowed standing armies. He also wanted economic equality in the world and a stationary population. Where do we hear this now – the WEF – you will own nothing and be happy. This is the only way we can have economic equality.

    I agree with Neil Oliver. Taxation is theft and I believe all property taxes should be abolished. We must build up our assets and be able to pass them down the generations to build up wealth and take responsibility for ourselves. Governments need to be limited in size and we must get rid of the political parties which create division and unrest. We need only a small number of independent representatives to organise what we cannot do for ourselves. Nothing demonstrates the inherent problems of government to run anything than the utter failure of the NHS, as described here. The staff employed by the NHS are as guilty as the government because they will not rock the boat and end a cushy job.

    Other things to take into considerations is the mass of opportunities now open to women .
    Why empty bed pans when you can become an astronaut , a tik tok influence , run a nice little earner on youtube , earn from a patreon site , have a kid and live off the state for life .
    There are endless openings now for females and like it or not they have been indoctrinated into believing the sky is not the limit.

    IMO the biggest problem with the NHS is they have far too much money. The 2 main parties now vie with each other to see who can throw the most money at the NHS. Meanwhile the NHS has spent decades reducing the facilities, cutting the number of beds available and spending the money on pointless managerial positions and vanity operations instead while continually bleating that they need more money. It has become such a behemoth no-one can take it on and sort out the shambles.

    I remember there was a documentary series where they sent John Harvey-Jones in to sort out failing businesses, he invariably did an excellent job of spotting where a company was going wrong and straightened them out. One episode involved him looking at the NHS, sadly his conclusion then was there is nothing to be done but scrap it and start again. And that was at least 30 years ago before the NHS became the useless monster it now is.

    Every word Neil Oliver said is correct. I was inwardly cheering him as I watched his 6 p.m. monologue on Saturday. I have experience of the NHS, as a professional almost 4 decades ago, and as the near relative of doctors and a midwife. I know just how hard medical professionals work, how the bureaucratic overload becomes ever more oppressive, how even if they ethically disapprove of an officially approved measure (the vax is one example, but there are others) they dare not voice that disapproval or digress from the status quo for fear of disapprobation from, even being struck off, their professional governing bodies. However, in practice the work overload is so consistently severe and exhausting that it is no surprise that even senior doctors have gone along with the covid vaccine false information, particularly if immunology is not their speciality. Be they surgeons or paediatricians or gastroenterologists or other, they have been far too occupied examining, investigating, X-raying and scanning and prescribing for the patients who DO fall within their specific area of expertise to question what the “experts” said. Dr. Aseem Malhotra, the Cardiologist, was one such. He accepted what he was told about the safety of the vax and only started to question it when it apparently was responsible for the death of his own father. He has now, following his own investigations and with great courage, spoken out, asking that the covid vaccine be temporarily suspended until further evidence of its safety can be established, but he is now in effect an outlaw, ostracised by fellow doctors and by his professional regulatory body. Personally, I find a close connection between the official blindness on the dangers of the mRNA “vaccines”, “catastrophic climate change” and the South Coast invasion. Group think. You’ll be punished if you refuse to comply with what you’re told and act accordingly, so best just to keep quiet. You do need, after all, to feed your family, pay your mortgage, meet your power bills. It’s not intended that we question anything.
