Worth a read but at the same time the financial naivety and incompetence “or is it ??” Is staggering. Seems like covid is the cash cow that just won’t stop giving.

i think you will find the NHS abandoned non covid patients , some private hospiytals were commissioned to performe routine non-covid operations.

It's never quite that black and white.  Most consultants will work for the NHS and have private lists too.  Those private lists won't have been getting seen to during that period as a) they wouldn't have been given clearance to operate and b) many would have been covering NHS shifts in any case...

 

Certainly in know of at least 1 orthopeadic surgeon who has lost tens of 1000s due to not being able to operate privately for some time.

 

It is the Guardian though, so no surprises there...

Do a bit of research and check out how many private beds and hospitals were block booked and the utter waste involved. The article refers specifically to covid patients. Abandon or not the financial incompetence is staggering. Particularly when you look at where we are now in reality.

The utter lunacy of this policy and the nightingale farce resulting in huge waste of taxpayers money just seems to be acceptable. The article and info is in a number of papers. I’m no fan of tbe Guardian it’s just it was easy to post a link on an I phone 🤷‍♂️

Well let’s see where this goes. Hiding away in lockdown a cause ??🤷‍♂️ or vaccination for only one form of covid virus. 

The wife and kids have had it for 5 weeks. Now the wee ones have Hands Foot and Mouth. Never ending just now.

I would think lockdown has a part to play in it, we haven't had chance to build up immunity to this seasons cold and flu bugs.
