NHS in Crisis (Winter 2017)

The British NHS is in constant crisis.
  • It is consistently unable to cope with the demand for health services. 
  • It is continually asking for more money.
  • Governments always gives in, and gives them more money.
  • But any new money is spent quickly, with no apparent improvement it its ability to cope with demand.
I have looked back at my previous blogs, and I have regularly discussed this ongoing problem. "Health Spending brings down Governments, and bankrupts the Nation" was written in 2012, and outlines the long history from 1947 to 2010 of how successive governments have been increasing expenditure on the NHS - but never enough to enable it to cope. Since then, I have been commenting on the the regular NHS crisis, see these blogs, although there are others!

Yet the reason for this monotonous repeated failure has never been ascertained.

The media never ask the right questions, questions that would be asked if the issue concerned any other sphere of human activity. Instead, they are happy to discuss the problem in accordance with the agenda set by the conventional medical establishment, the excuses, the self-justifications. Journalists never challenge that agenda, they invariably go along with it.
  • The NHS is inadequately resourced.
  • The NHS needs to be restructured, re-organised.
  • The patient population is ageing, and this is why there is increased demand.
  • More sick patients, with more and more illnesses, are being treated every year.
The problem is non of these things. The problem with the NHS is not financial, it is not organisational, IT IS MEDICAL!
  • Conventional medicine does not work. It is not effective. It rarely, if ever, has successful or effective treatments available that actually cure sick people. They ameliorate, they provide temporary fixes. But patients are seldom completely well again.
  • Indeed, the pharmaceutical drugs that form the basis of conventional medical treatment make patients sicker. Doctors call them 'side effects'. They are really 'disease-inducing-effects', in other words, they actually cause disease. More disease, that is, for the NHS to treat! More cost. More work. More pressure.
  • When conventional medicine tries to prevent disease (often benign illnesses) its main weapon is vaccines. And vaccines also cause disease, especially to children, who then become long-term NHS patients, with long-term needs, long-term sickness, such as ADHD, Autism, Asthma, and many others. More disease for the NHS to treat. More cost for the NHS. More work and pressure for staff.
  • These doctor-induced (iatrogenic) diseases are now running at epidemic levels. And conventional medicine has no effective treatment for these illnesses, most of them, at least in part, caused by pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines. These epidemic diseases are at the heart of the ongoing NHS crisis, and they always have been.
The government will almost certainly provide the NHS with more resources, given sufficient pressure from doctors and patients, from patient support groups, supported (in the background) by the pharmaceutical industry, and unchallenged by the mainstream media, by politicians, and by governments, who ask no questions, and fail to challenge the conventional medical establishment about its failure to cope.

So what good will this new funding do? There will be more money for largely ineffective treatments that will fail to reduce the sick population and so fail to reduce workload. There will be more more money to spend on more pharmaceutical drugs and vaccines which, through their 'side effects', will increase levels of sickness and disease, adding to the future workload of the NHS. And with increased demand on NHS resources, there will be another funding crisis.

And this will continue until proper, pertinent, challenging questions are asked of the conventional medical establishment about the performance they are achieving from the money they are already spending, and the outcome of this expenditure on patient outcomes.
