Privatisation of the NHS

Most of you won’t realise that the privatisation of the NHS has already happened and even more will not have grasped the full extent of the coalition’s sale of what was, of course, our property. Do you remember giving them permission to do this? Didn’t think so.

What will happen when those of us with chronic illnesses are no longer welcome at GP practices and also cannot get insured for our pre-existing conditions – never mind the fact that we couldn’t afford insurance anyway from our ever-dwindling to non-existent benefits?

It will make many of us afraid to go to the doctor too often as it is. An added anxiety we could well do without.

Of course we won’t simply be “left to die” because our conditions might not kill us. At least not quickly. They’ll just make us wish we were dead and about the only humane thing left in this country will be euthanasia.

Oh, I forgot that’s illegal.
