Over­haul the NHS

Scottish Daily Mail - - Freeview Primetime Planner -

OUR squea­mish politi­cians will soon have to bite the bul­let and ac­cept that the NHS is no longer fit for pur­pose. They must stop this non­sense that it is sacro­sanct and must not be mod­ernised. It does not mat­ter who is in power or how much money is pumped in, the NHS in its present form will not im­prove.

It needs to be re­con­structed root and branch. be­ing in fact a na­tion­alised or­gan­i­sa­tion it has all the na­tion­al­i­sa­tion faults, be­ing bu­reau­crat­i­cally top heavy and in­ef­fi­ciently run. A com­mit­tee ought to be formed con­sist­ing of the bosses who run our large su­per­mar­kets so ef­fi­ciently.

It should be given carte blanche to bring for­ward plans to rad­i­cally re­form the NHS to make it fit for the 21st cen­tury.

o.R. STE­WART, Glas­gow.
