I seldom watch the news as I find it very odd at times. They were talking about social/community care cuts that are happening in around the country at rapid speed. The sadness is real as the head of a council made an excuse on the older populous and people with severe disabilities. To provoke such as response in which people must accept such cuts as a necessary act that people have to “deal with”.
I find it amazing that in 2018 people see “care” as something that the “state” should not fund for and somehow that seems to the overall case. I wish the people would understand that when people vote for right-wing polices the impact they have on services run for and by the state. It means cuts to vital services the infinite bloodline for people who need it. Profit should not be put before people, their wants, needs, desires.
The NHS will stand but it needs the staff and funding to work successful manner that benefits the service it provides by constantly saying the NHS is at “breaking point” implies that “it” is the problem that is not the case it was the most forward thinking and progressive service that was created.
If we go to a nationwide private system sick people will not have the money to fund their own treatment even simple dental check-ups would be missed causing great pain and social/emotional stigma and that is just one example. We do need to protect our NHS because it is for everybody I have no doubt that it will stand and keep going but as a state run service people need to have their say the patients and staff for it to work as solid unit.
