Skip to comments.Hospital wards to shut in secret NHS cuts
Posted on 03/26/2010 6:42:40 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Tens of thousands of NHS workers would be sacked, hospital units closed and patients denied treatments under secret plans for £20 billion of health cuts.
The sick would be urged to stay at home and email doctors rather than visit surgeries, while procedures such as hip replacements could be scrapped.
The plans have emerged as health chiefs draw up emergency budgets that cast doubt on pledges by Gordon Brown to protect front line services in the NHS.
The plans are contained in a series of internal NHS documents uncovered by The Daily Telegraph.
The final details of the plans are not due to be announced until the autumn, well after the country has gone to the polls for the general election.
The Conservatives and health campaigners said the public deserved to know the true extent of cuts at their local surgeries and hospitals before voting.

Its a good thing this won’t happen under government healthcare!
They are covering up their moves like a cat covers up its poop. In both cases, it’s because they stink.
Great I look at England and see us unless something changes...
LOL! Seniors in the USA who break their hip can email a doctor under Obama Care. Thank MCCain and MCCAIN-Feingold for Dems victories in 2006/2008.
Rationed health care at its finest.
Hey Grandma? You are too old to be treated here at the hospital. Time for you to go back home and die!
the new bill already cuts dialysis , Hospice care,MRI’s for seniors....on and on...Oh boy, are the Lib seniors and medicare people gonna LOVE this new bill!
These cuts are coming in 2011....just in time for the election in 2012!
I know...and why exactly are the dems loving this sh#t sandwich we are about to eat?? Bastards....
"subject:chest pain....hey,doc,I've got this weird pain going down my right arm and I can't breathe..."
They REALLY believe its ok if the MSM says it is.
And you know what the *real* hoot is...the Brits have been "perfecting" this for SIXTY YEARS and yet we see that there are still more than a few "kinks"....
I couldn’t agree with you more.
Off !!! with their heads
Exactly..This was about power pure and simple...But what is Bama going to do with it when there is no dems left to do his bidding??? Except for Pelosi...I really want her to stay and become one of the little people of the House.
Sadly it is not funny, it is about people. people that need medical attention. My sister in laws niece who lives in England, lost a baby at full term a few weeks ago. she was two weeks over her due date. and begged for a Ceasarian, given past family history, and was denied, and the results were sadly the loss of the baby
Unfortunately it seems to be out of pure spite that liberals want to destroy America. They know their little fantasy world can’t exist so they want to destroy this one so we can’t have it either.
As a mother who has buried a baby, my prayers for your sister in laws niece.
But I do not think this poster was trying to be funny.
I now call the health care bill that passed death care. I have seen relatives in Canada left in pain, or blind, until they die. Only one got help, but he had been a politician.
There is NOTHING funny about the coming deaths of Americans because liberals believe in their utopia over freedom.
Again, prayers for the baby, who was not given a chance to live, by government decree.
Well if nothing changes they will get their wish....
More preview of Obamacare...
Is sad because it cannot work has been proved that it cannot work,by countries that have it, even tbough they have tried their darndiest . My Mother i rescued from the English national Health system, after she was put out to die, she could not see, she had Cataracts . I read last week that the NICE , which is some kind of overseer board that detirmins who gets care and who does not, in England cost 5 billion pounds per annum.
Thank you for your prayers, and your post
It is ridiculous to blame McCain for the Dems win in 2006 and 2008.
McCain and all other Republicans from conservatives, to moderates to “RINO”s deserve a lot of credit for standing UNITED against Obamacare.
It is interesting that you blame Republicans but do NOT blame OBAMA, PELOSI, REID, and all the leftist Dems who defied the will of the people in passing Obamacare
detirmins = decides lol
You obviously have no clue on how MCCain-Feingold worked. Did you maybe just notice that Obama had $700 million from unknown soruces so he could run TV ads, print ads, buy off all the magazines and newspapers with ad money. This is how he won. It is really sad when some people supposedly on our side cannot connect the dots. You probably lost your country thanks to MCCAIN-Feingold.
It goes without saying that Reid, Pelosi and Obama are evil scum but how did they get in power? Money. Illegal campaign and union money while MCCAIN screwed our side with his unconstitutional law. McCain sabaotaged us and may have destroyed your future and country.
Because they hate America and the people who built it, which consists in large part of most of the elderly.
You give them a lot more credit than I do. I have no belief whatsoever that they do it because they think they know best for us. That would mean that they’re at least somewhat altruistic and compassionate. I say they do it for the power, the control and the redistributive “social justice” aspect of it which is just an excuse to steal.
IMO, they’re evil, corrupt thieves and liars, not altruistic.
