Tory proposal to charge patients £10 for non attendance to see a GP at the surgery. Are Tory and Labour MP's unaware that there are no GP's in surgeries. all that's offered in many surgeries is a GP will contact a patient by telephone. Will a Government, Tory or Labour or another agree to fine GP's a £1,000 for non attendance at their surgeries where they should be giving " hands on" attention to patients who pay through their taxes for an NHS doctor to be available : UPON DEMAND; AT THE TIME OF NEED; AND FREE OF CHARGE.
IT'S OBSCENE THAT 74 YEARS AFTER THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE WAS ESTABLISHED WE HAVE HOSPITAL CONSULTANTS, SURGEONS; AND GPs SEEING PATIENTS PRIVATELY, PROVIDED THE PATIENTS PAY.
IT IS IMMORAL THAT IN 2022 WE WITNESS CONSULTANTS; SURGE0NS WORKING THREE DAYS IN A NHS HOSPITAL OR IN THEIR PRIVATE CONSULTING ROOM AND THEN SEEING PRIVATE PATIENTS IN THE NEXT THREE DAYS AT A PRIVATE HOSPITAL EARNING A HIGHER SALARY ( IN MANY CASES PAID FOR BY THE NHS )
AS A SOCIALIST I WANT TO SEE ALL PATIENTS SEEN WITHIN THE NHS; I WANT TO SEE AN END TO ALL PRIVATE HEATH HOSPITALS AND PRIVATE HEALTH CARE.
