Tory NHS claims are a poor attempt to patch up the dirty, open wound that is their record

The Conservative government must think we’re stupid. Look at the state of this:

The government has pledged billions for hospital projects across England, at the start of the Conservative party conference.

The plans include a £2.7bn investment for six hospitals over five years.

A new approach to NHS mental health treatment will also be trialled in 12 areas of England – with housing and job support alongside psychological help.

Under plans drawn up by Health Secretary Matt Hancock, the government has said £13bn will be spent on hospital projects, including entirely new buildings or revamping existing structures to improve facilities.

The same pot of money will also be used to develop plans for further projects in the future.

Mr Hancock said the funding would come from taxpayers

There is no detail to this because it is a Tory promise, made ahead of an expected general election before Christmas; I doubt they have any intention of actually carrying out this promise.

Tories lie. Only yesterday we heard that a Conservative minister had told that party’s conference that they created the National Health Service.

In fact, they tried to prevent its creation, claiming that it “discourages voluntary effort and association; mutilates the structure of local governent; dangerously increases Ministerial power and patronage; appropriates trust funds and benefactions in contempt of the wishes of donors and subscribers; and undermines the freedom and independence of the medical profession to the detriment of the nation”.

Even that was a lie. Healthcare before the NHS was a nightmare for working people. Read the books of Harry Leslie Smith for information on the way a private health system fails to work. That was a hindrance to the nation.

Labour will put real investment into the NHS, and will remove the cancer of privatisation that was injected into it by the Conservatives and has been growing ever since, rotting the service from the inside.

Doesn’t the Labour promise seem more wholesome to you?

    They cannot accommodate what they have now with correct and quality staffing having destroyed the many opportunities to developing and training our own home grown staff. These new hospitals will be the free ride for privatisation of NHS services to external forces most probably Hunts US mates. In my area a very large majority of NHS works seems to be now diverted to private hospitals funded by the same CCG groups who were pleading poverty. What’s going on? Have you seen the financial results of many private hospital balance sheets huge spikes in income and profit in first quarter and half year results most of which is coming from our NHS!! Appreciate NHS want to catch up on their failure to provide cancer and treatments in a timely manner but at what cost and what end game? The austerity campaign must have produced enormous funds of money for this sudden release of excessive spending on police, teaching hospitals etc for the Cons election campaigns ….money that the tax payers created for this never ending money tree Election bribe.
