PFI deals were invented in 1992 by the Conservative government led by Sir John Major, but became widespread under Labour after 1997. The schemes usually involved large scale buildings such as new schools and hospitals, or infrastructure projects which would previously have been publicly funded by the Treasury.

The even uglier reality for Miliband is that the New Labour era was a golden age for the PFI. The modern PFI is the child of John Major’s Conservative government, but it was adopted and thrived under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. Between 1997 and 2008, 90 per cent of all hospital construction funding was under PFI agreements, which paid for 75 per cent of all hospitals built.

I have just been seen by a consultant, booked in for minor surgery and had a small operation( under local anaesthetic). It was paid for by the NHS, yet all of it was done in a private hospital. A member of staff informed me that 75% of the work done by the hospital was for the NHS and would naturally cost more than if the NHS were to do the work in house. Most of the junior staff were trained by the NHS and left for better pay and working conditions. The consultant was employed by the NHS and did the private work part time as it was more lucrative. These private contracts have grown and grown under this Government with the excuse of speeding up treatment, when in fact it is to enrich their friends in the private sector and reduce the NHS our proudest achievement.

That is good, jumper3. You've had mostly fortunate experience of the NHS.
It isn't a Tory/Labour thing (despite what many forum users would have you think) that's caused the concern of millions of others who haven't had the same experience as you.

Without going into personal detail, I promise you, it isn't always so good. Especially for people who live a long way from any hospital. Which since most of them are now closed, means a lot of people. Or no ambulance when it's called for. Or no A+E within 20 or 30 miles.

Report Danno January 7, 2018 3:09 PM GMT
Focus is always on the supply side of the NHS (media, politics etc).  But very little on the cause of most of the issues, ie, the demand.

And I don't mean immigration (though an increasing population obviously is going to create a greater demand).  I mean, why isn't more focus placed on the promotion of healthy living and a consequent reduction on the reliance of medical attention for ailments that can be avoided by a change in lifestyle.

That's a long term issue, which goes back to school meals, facilities for exercise, control over the food industry, attitudes to alcohol and tobacco, and so on.  As such, there's no political capital in something that can't be solved in a five year political cycle.  Short-termism at it's worst.

It's like giving someone a car, and saying that no matter what they do with it, it will always be serviced and repaired at taxpayers cost, regardless of how you treat it.  As such, there's no incentive to look after it, change the oil, service the engine etc.  People's cavalier attitude to their own health is staggering, and it is those clogging up the system with preventable conditions that put a strain on the NHS to provide a service for all those who genuinely need it.  Ask anyone who works in the health service and they will tell you that alcohol, inactivity, poor diet and smoking are the contributing factors to at least 2/3rds of hospital admissions.
Report STUDYFORM January 7, 2018 4:00 PM GMT
All they do, danno, is to delay the inevitable. Even if a healthier lifestyle worked, then 5 or 10 years later the same people will still need the NHS and the argument will be about an aging population!
If people are found to be healthier and longer lived because of lifestyle changes then the use of hospitals and medical intervention is reduced to fulfil that need. Until the time when those people get a bit older. Then the NHS wouldn't be able to cope because of increasing demand of old age diseases.

There hasn't really been a great deal of research into the real effects of lifestyle changes (except possibly smoking) not least because of the cost of it. Pharmaceutical companies wouldn't want to pay because it would mean less income from the drugs they make.
Marketing organisations are happy to invent (unproven) methods of staying healthy and living forever -like 5 a day fruit and veg (this varies massively from country to country), or you need to drink 3 litres of water a day, because it helps them sell product.
Also and most important of all Genes are the biggest factor in how diseases develop and everybody is different, no amount of lifestyle change will help.

The fact remains that it isn't entirely the demand which is the cause of the current problems. It's the supply.
In all things: Supply will always meet demand or increase its cost to reduce demand. This cannot happen with health. When demand outstrips supply, supply needs to be increased, not cut.

According to the GP e-magazine, Pulse, January 2018, the flu vaccine has not worked again this year, particularly with the over 75's, who conventional doctors believe to be the most 'at-risk' group. As a result, doctors have been advised by NHS England to order a separate vaccine for them next year.

                "A letter from NHS England’s Public Health Commissioning Team instructed practices order a separate flu vaccine for patients who are over 75 years of age, after PHE announced in September that last year’s vaccine was not ‘significantly effective’ in older patients."

If you catch the flu go to bed with a bottle of whiskey is my remedy.

The whiskey won't make the flu any better, but it'll make being ill more of a pleasure.
