Under the NHS bill currently being debated in the House of Lords, provisions have been made that allow all NHS hospitals to allocate 49% of their beds to private patients. Which means waiting lists will automatically double in length and us lot who are already over-stretched paying bills and can’t afford private healthcare, will be at the back of the queue.
Makes a mockery of Lansley’s recent demands that hospitals get their waiting lists under control!
I’ll post reason a day that the NHS bill is a disaster while it is being debated in the House of Lords.
