It took a while but it now appears that there is a dawning realisation in the Government about what a mess they’ve made of the NHS, says Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Ipswich, David Ellesmere.
The unnecessary £3 billion reorganisation that David Cameron promised wouldn’t happen and the subsequent privatisation of services is causing chaos at a time when finances are the most stretched they’ve been for years.
One unnamed senior minister is now quoted as saying that the NHS reorganisation is their “greatest mistake”.
That’s all well and good but are they actually going to do anything about it?
Labour have promised to repeal the 2012 Health and Social Care Act which brought in this mess and increase funding to the NHS.
Unless David Cameron promises to do the same this “mistake” is going to continue to get worse and worse.
