The Future of the NHS: A Tale of Two Headlines...

Just take a minute to review these two headlines running at the moment about health care in the UK.

Firstly on the BBC website

"Home care for elderly branded 'shocking and disgraceful'"

then this one from the Guardian website

"Devon NHS children's services set for privatisation"

Now to the first headline - the fact is that Elderly Home Care has been continually outsourced (privatised) from Local Authority control for about 20 years or so - and this is the headline we have and the evidence before us in 2012.

Despite this, the Coalition Government are pursuing the same failed prescription in Children's care today.

Quite frankly it is ludicrous, dangerous and morally, economically, politically and socially wrong on every level.

Is it any wonder I can't sleep at night!
