The Tories plan to starve the NHS

30 June, 2017

• ON June 21, an internal NHS document seen by The Guardian newspaper revealed secret
plans by Jeremy Hunt and the Tories to impose unprecedented cuts to health spending in London.

“The capped expenditure process” will hit the provision of NHS care to the 1.44 million people who live in the boroughs of Islington, Camden, Haringey, Barnet and Enfield.

The Tories plan to starve the NHS of the funds it needs to do its job properly and force hospitals to provide poorer care. The Royal College of Surgeons said the cuts could have a devastating impact on patients.

The NHS is approaching its 69th birthday on July 5 and it seems the Tories are determined to make sure it doesn’t reach its 70th. The problems with the NHS will be ongoing as long as the Tories remain in power.
