The truth about NHS capacity.

We are all paying the price for the decision to keep the Nightingale hospitals open. No 10 had almost 2 years to extend capacity in the NHS.

  1. I have read about the huge amounts of money spent on this accreditation and that accreditation which is just correctness at its worst . The NHS must spend their funds wisely and not on totally useless projects. Boris must go and I noticed when travelling to and from the West Country yesterday that only 50% of travellers were wearing masks as they know that whilst important Omicron is what you have noted…..Flu shows up during most winters and I cannot remember all this fuss being made . Be sensible yes but do not be controlling. You have lost the country Boris and remember what happens when a vacuum is created. …I wonder what Eric Blair would have made of this or Aldous Huxley……

  2. Dear Nigel, you talk a lot of sense that is for sure. What you don't realise is that this chaos has to happen as it was prophesied in the Bible. Are you aware that hundreds of Bible prophesies have already been fulfilled exactly as prophesied? Imagine calculating the odds for that to be achieved!! The Bible is the Word of our creator God so if you want to know where all this leads then read the Bible. NO man can change what is happening. What God has promised, WILL continue to happen… God bless

  3. I wrote to my Tory MP is a career politician in a very safe seat. Cannot think for himself and a total waste of space. He voted for Johnson's plan B and sent me a pre formatted letter saying he was proud to vite for plan B. Spinless.

  4. You know and we all know it's time for change! Who do we have that can inspire and deliver the way forward for a better tomorrow and years to come? No one other than yourself Nigel, and the time is now for you to take on the weak followers, who are not leaders and are failing the people of the UK. Please 🙏 consider the impact you have on a majority of UK citizens who love you and support all that you represent for the common good and sensibility of a great nation that needs someone like you to heal the wounds and reinstall hope , prosperity and liberty that is slowly being eradicated! All I'm simply saying Nigel, is come back and help a failing nation and give hope to the majority who love our country and love you ❤️ xxxx God bless you, and take care and be safe 🙏

  5. Having more NHS capacity won't fix the problem! Why? There are not enough qualified staff to look after patients, including ancillary staff, NOT ONLY NURSES!!! Start paying NHS Staff decent wages so that people actually want to work for the NHS. On a qualified nurses salary, they can't even afford a mortgage. STOP talking about increasing capacity. Instead, start fighting for better pay for NHS staff, then you can increase capacity. You can set up a nightingale hospital in a few weeks. It takes years to train a nurse. Come on, man, you should know better!!!

  6. This government is letting everyone down . letting people die of cancer and other illnesses no one seems to care about them.and they are not getting treatment.all say it covid is all that matters no it's not old people have paid for their treatment through their taxes.all their lives it's not there fault.the money has no covered the they may need it's the fault of all the governments past and present for not investing in the NHS and now we are being held to ransom.they have no idear.they are to blame for this mess

  7. you lot keep slagging him off about that party but look what the public is doing, walking around no masks, going to football. drinking, they are the hypocrites.

  8. I cannot say I have always agreed with Mr. Farage, but in this clip he has my 100 per cent support. This is project fear! Frankly, we deserve better than we are getting from the liars and hypocrites in Whitehall.

  9. And now they want to sack NHS staff. It's Munchausen at Work. They intentionally create a problem in order to create a solution. And that solution will always be more power for them, and less power for us.

  10. There is no investment into the n.h.s because the government want to sell it , and by running it into the ground eventually the public might be persuaded it will be better run by American medical companys, but as we know in America ,NO insurance, NO care,

  11. Absolutely correct Nigel!
    I worked for 50yrs as a nurse in the NHS until I retired 8yrs ago. I witnessed over those years a systematic reduction in bed capacity and a relentless increase in management posts (usually on ever larger salaries).
    Gone were the days of hospitals with sufficient beds and front line staff to provide the care, managed then by a Hospital Matron and a Hospital Secretary (most senior management post). Now it includes offices based teams, at many different management levels, overlooking, quite often, inefficient systems with little or no real understanding or accountability for outcomes or efficiency.
    Some of extra billions that have been poured in to the NHS since covid, could have been used by hospitals to easily increase their capacity, ie by procuring pre-constructed ‘pods’ of fitted medical facilities eg an intensive care pod, a surgical theatre pod, an emergency medical emergency pod, a pharmacy pod, etc, etc. These could easily be linked to existing hospital buildings, so much more efficient and cost effective than huge, now defunct, nightingale facilities.
    As for the extra staff to run the increased patient capacity, recruit more support staff, each one to be attached (as a learning post similar to an apprenticeship) to a professionally qualified member of staff (eg, nurse, pharmacist, physiotherapist, etc) on every shift. Together they will be able to meet the needs of each patient within that whole environment, because I believe that extra clinical hands can provide a more effective and efficient outcome.
    This may be seen as a far too simplistic approach, but we have to start somewhere and rethink the way we do things in the NHS, because the NHS definitely needs route and branch reform to provide the best care possible (and it does in most cases, despite its problems) for the people of this country.
    I passionately believe in the NHS and the ethos of ‘from the cradle to the grave’ care for every citizen of this country.
    I’m so proud of the fact that everyone in this country has access to healthcare no matter what their means or circumstances, but let’s do it through a better system.
