I have spoken of this before but now there is confirmation that the attack by the private health companies is intensifying. At worst we will have no National Health Service left or at best a two tier service with those who can afford it having private treatment with the latest technologies and drugs and for the rest of our citizens only basic health care in a deteriorating service.
Not only will this division in health be immoral and a negation of the principles laid down when the NHS was founded but will inevitably lead to social unrest on an unprecedented scale. This in turn leading to even more central control, surveillance and repression. The systems are in place already and they just need implementing in full and then it will be too late to save our society from total disintegration.
It may not be too late if we act now and act together. We can protest to our Members of Parliament, we can write blogs and write to the papers, we can demand to know who benefits from any treatment that we may need and above all we can refuse to have any treatment carried out by these private companies. We insist on only full NHS care. It can be done as I pointed out a while back. Please don’t shrug your shoulders at yet another blog, this is the biggest threat facing us, do something, anything.
