90 MPs from all Parties get together to fight for the NHS

AllPartyNHS

This is the letter that 90 MPs sent to the Prime Minister last week. We need all-Party action like this if we are to save the NHS

At the end of last week, a highly important development took place when 90 MPs from all Parties got together to write to the Prime Minister demanding action on the NHS.

They believe, as do I, that if the NHS is to be saved and kept true to its original ideals then this can only be achieved by trying to reach a none-political, none-Party consensus. Remember, this was how the NHS was established in the first place. It was a Labour Government that set it up but the programme that was used was created by Beveridge, a life-long Liberal.

Changing the NHS is not just about money, although money is needed. The NHS has not adapted to the massive demographic changes in our society. It has not, organisationally, caught up with many of the advances made by its own doctors, clinicians and researchers.

No further comment from me is required as I believe that the letter, reprinted in full above, speaks for itself. I think that this is an important contribution to the debate about the NHS. What do you think?
