So what's the solution? Do we need to put more money in or is the NHS an inefficient lumbering giant that needs radical surgery?
Well there is no complete solution is there and the sooner we all accept that the happier as a nation we will be. The NHS is one of the largest employers in Europe and so yes it is rather bound to be top heavy in management and such like. But there is no need to tip the baby out with the bathwater is there.
Whatever solution we suggest it is going to cost more money and the only place that money is going to come from is from taxation. So who is going to take the hit in paying more tax then? Personally I am not all that bothered where it comes from as long as the burden is spread as evenly and fairly as possible.
The NHS has it's problems but it would be surprising if it didn't considering it's size and complexity. All in all it is I think an organisation we can be proud of. I just hope we don't let the politicians wreck it.
