More on dangerous NHS

The Sunday Times front page reports more frightening evidence of NHS failure:

"In the past two years the Department of Health has made at least 20 announcements claiming big improvements in cancer care, citing an increase of nearly 1,200 cancer specialists and improvements in cancer survival rates.

However, the latest analysis estimates Britain still has one of the lowest survival rates in western Europe with only 36% of men likely to survive beyond five years compared with 55% in Austria, 50% in Sweden, 45% in France and Germany, and 44% in Spain."

(The full report is available at Reform)

This stark reality contrasts horribly with the parallel universe inhabited by the abominable John Reid.

The sooner we get our health services right away from the politicians, the safer we'll be.
