Online documentary lays bare how the NHS has been prepared for privatisation

People are saying great things about a new documentary about the National Health Service, which is available for viewing online.

The Great NHS Heist is a film by Dr Bob Gill that professes to detail how the UK has been robbed of its most precious possession.

According to the film’s publicity:

“The British National Health Service is the nation’s proudest achievement, lifting the burden from the sick, and copied across the world,

“But it has been under sustained attack over decades by successive governments.

“Realising that privatisation would be unpopular, the Thatcher Government instead started a programme of outsourcing that was continued and expanded under the Blair New Labour Government and up to the present.

“It required careful planning and a series of legal and structural changes spanning 30 years to bring it to the brink of American corporate capture; or, as one former policy adviser put it, reduced to “a funding stream and a logo”.

“A docile and complicit media have failed to hold power to account and inform the public about what is really happening to their NHS.

“Austerity and chaos over Brexit has provided perfect cover for the engineered failure of services, necessary to persuade the public to fall out of love with the NHS.

“NHS land, patient data and tax-funded budgets are all up for grabs.

“How did we get here? This film reveals The Great NHS Heist.”

Well, we already knew about the engineered failure of services being designed to convince the public that a private service is better – we have Noam Chomsky to thank for that:
