Someone tell Therese Coffey: two-week target to see GPs is in place ALREADY

Last Updated: September 22, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Coffey and liquor: this is the Tory minister who reckons she’s going to get the NHS back on track.

This is more smoke and mirrors from the Liz Truss Tory government.

Health Secretary Therese Coffey has announced a plan to improve access to GPs, with a target for everyone making an appointment to be seen within two weeks.

But that is the target at the moment:

Note that the David Cameron Coalition government reduced the target to this from Labour’s earlier target of just two days, back in 2010.

It seems likely the move was intended to pre-empt an expected worsening of services when Andrew Lansley brought private, profit-making healty companies into the NHS in his bid to turn it into a cash cow for extremely wealthy shareholders.

No wonder GP leaders are saying the announcement will have “minimal impact”.

So let’s have one more tweet to sum up the situation:

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
