Brexit : The sell off of the NHS to American healthcare companies begins.

Another Project Fear becomes Project Reality

An American health corporation has been handed a contract to take over the running of GP surgeries that provide services for over 375,000 patients in the London area. This issue was raised by local media and the shadow health secretary in the House Of Commons, however the Health Secretary Matt Hancock ignored the issue.

2. Well, it isn't as if they weren't warned that this would happen. What a collective effort at

National Shooting in the Foot.

4. Why is this a problem?

The British people don't pay medical bills, and the Government sets the standards for service and payments.

5. Many reasons but the NHS has been under attack by the Tories for

decades, similar to the ideological shit of the Republicans in the US. They've been slowly eroding the quality of the service that the NHS has been renowned for, and people were warned that Brexit would signal a renewed attempt to sell off the crown jewel that is the NHS. And here they are. By making the NHS shit, they'd be forcing people to purchase private health insurance.

Two of my wife's nieces trained in the NHS, one as a doctor and one as a radiographer (and she is married to an NHS doctor herself). Both have said that there's a real ethos of service which they didn't understand before they joined.

American healthcare has a pretty dreadful reputation on this side of the Atlantic.
