NHS shake-up vital, says MP

First published in News

AN MP has praised the NHS and called on the Government to stick to its health reforms.

James Duddridge, MP for Rochford and Southend East, said constituents felt successive Governments had carried out too many reforms of the health service.

The Conservative called on the Government to stick with its latest shake-up, which saw responsibility for an area’s healthcare being passed to GP groups.

He said: “Having set out on this strategic direction in the NHS, it is right that we stick to it, bringing GPs closer to the broader care of individuals and bringing together social services and more traditional NHS care.”

Another pointless comment. Nothing useful or based on knowledge or research; just another commonplace, throwaway remark.

If you can do better, put yourself up for election.

But then, you'd have to go under your real name wouldn't you - and you wouldn't be able to make false claims and accusations against people you don't know.

Perhaps not then. Scrap that idea.

As for the NHS, it's oversubscribed with phone number salaried executives and far too open to health tourism and others who have never paid into it, at the expense of those who have contributed to it for years.

It is also grossly understaffed and often fails to employ local people, preferring instead, in many cases, to import non English speaking staff who will work ludicrous hours, often for less money..

well an NHS shakeup would be vital to an MP because it means they can make cuts and claim even more taxpayers money in the form of expenses etc.

what do you mean 'others who have never paid into it.' Are you saying that sick people who have never paid into the system should be turned away?

The UK has The working time directive which limits the number of hours that people can work and it also has a minimum wage so why do you say that foreigners work ludicrous hours at a lower salary than home grown staff? Why shouldn't they if our people are too lazy/greedy to do the job? There is also a minimum standard of English that is acceptable to the NHS and applicants are examined on their spoken English.

A (British) relative of mine is a nurse with very many years of experience and earns a little more than the minimum wage and works incredibly long hours so its just a bit one sided your argument isnt it. But then aren't most of your rantings?

You really are a nasty piece of work.

You were at the recent AGM of Basildon Council sitting in the front row like a cross between Miss Piggy - throwing your hair around, nearly knocking out the guy sitting behind you - and the french woman who used to sit knitting at the foot of the guillotine during the Terror, whispering comments to your friend. Tweeting away. Waving your arms around like a windmill. All the behavoural traits you accuse the labour councillors of having. Tsk tsk. Why is it not allowed for them but it is acceptable for you to behave badly.Not of course that you are a councillor. have you ever been a councillor?

Whats with the interest in things Basildon? you dont even live in the borough.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.

Kimbo the Bimbo is more than a nasty piece of work. She is a vile excuse for a human. There is no place in society for people like her.
