Don’t worry about the fact that 82% of GPs are planning to leave or cut their hours in the next five years. Don’t worry that junior doctors aren’t any happier. And don’t worry that every week reveals another NHS hospital deeply in the red – even ones we thought were ok.
Don’t worry about any of that, because Jeremy Hunt has a plan.
It’s the NHS’s own plan, he repeats in every media interview. It’s the plan it would be a ‘disaster’ to deviate from, he told us before the election.
Under current Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and NHS boss Simon Stevens’ plan, it’s all about collaboration now.
Fraser Nelson nails it when he says: “Stevens’ Grand Plan is to have no more Grand Plans but, instead, lots of smaller plans.”
Hunt and Stevens see more privatisation, not less, as the answer.

At what cost? Will this be another two tier dentist scam. Of the doctors who are doing a runner many have openly stated that they, like the nurses, will move to more lucrative agency work where they are guaranteed better salaries, for doing less hours and having a work life balance. Nice one if you can work the system but I think I can just work out who the losers will eventually be as we are already seeing it in our own surgeries and local hospitals.. That nice man Hunt will make us all better….look at his Mr. Bean lookalike picture above….you know he makes sense….trust him, you’re safe, he’s a Tory.
Frankly, he just looks deranged.
Presumably, Hunt will be supported in this by the turncoat peer “Lord” Warner.
