    Exposed the hospitals whose high daeth rates are failing the NHS

    Why is it that despite everybody being so concerned about their health and surely worried that they do not get the best care available when in hospital, that those who work in the NHS offer such appalling service that they actually cause patients harm?

    I suggest you read the report before commenting, as my words might cause alarm but they are backed by this article!

    Being concerned about the health of my family and any future care they may require I have made sure that none of us will ever have to go within 10 miles of a NHS hospital.The NHS has needed a gigantic overhaul for years ,nobody seems to know where to start so maybe the best thing to do is to gradually close it down through privatisation.The millions saved by the government would of course be returned to the taxpayer to pay for there health insurance.

    Problem is Streetwalker that by far the majority of hospital admissions come about as a consequence of emergency, taken ill, road accident etc., where you cannot easily control the point of admission. Hence it is vital that the whole NHS network is rapidly brought to at least minimum acceptable standards for the general good of the nation. Privatisation might provide this but there may be another huge factor.

    Since this subject is questioned on almost at least an annual basis, I do wonder whether it still prevails that the safest time to have an emergency admission remains Monday to Thursday between 9am and 5pm, as they are the times when we might find a consultant around?

    The NHS is a hugh complicated set up no doubt,even when going private I still have to go to my (NHS) GP to get his permission. Whats all that about? The NHS will never be brought up to an acceptable standard , it is has gone too far down the road of ineptitude for that to ever happen.
