“Jam tomorrow” promise

Posted on: 14th February 2019

Meanwhile, it seems the “jam tomorrow” promise of £20 billion extra for the NHS in 2023/4 has taken attention away from the current crisis in our NHS. The 100,000 doctor, nurse and specialist vacancies, chronic debt and intolerable pressure on staff is happening now, while money is haemorrhaging into private companies which are free to cherry-pick the easier work.

Unfortunately Government supporters only want to talk about wishes and hopes for a distant future rather than facing up to the current crisis now.
