Apparently these are Gordon Brown's main aims with the NHS:
· Power back in hands of patients and staff
· All patients best health care"
So why have you been behind the devastating reform agenda of the last ten years that has wasted billions of pounds centralising and privatising the service while taking power away from patients and staff? Why have you been behind the woeful reform that has handed more and more power to managers and politicians so that they can fiddle statistics to provide propaganda for the party?
Gordon Brown's actions for the last ten years have meant that patients have suffered directly as a result of many ill thought out top down NHS schemes. The wasteful PFI is Gordon's lovechild after all, it hardly helps provide the best care for patients does it Gordon? I find it's pretty hard to provide good basic care when your local trust has run out of money because it is obliged to pay for an expensive PFI white elephant, thus cutting basic services to feed the white elephant.
I will believe it when I see it Gordon, and please stop leaving your mouth hanging open, it really is a rather unpleasant sight.
