Tories ‘acted too late’ to prevent winter crisis, says official report

The winter crisis has been made worse by the Government’s failure to reverse dwindling bed numbers in hospitals and invest in community services to help prevent emergency admissions, auditors have shown.

Whatever will award-winning Jeremy Hunt make of that?

Senior Tory MP urges Jeremy Hunt to stop NHS privatisation

A senior Conservative MP has called on Jeremy Hunt to put the brakes on plans which campaigners have previously claimed could open the NHS to privatisation.

Dr Sarah Wollaston, the chair of the Commons Health Committee, has written to the Health and Social Care Secretary urging him to delay a new contract for Accountable Care Organisations (ACOs) – due to be implemented later this year.

It comes after Professor Stephen Hawking joined legal action last year that is seeking to scupper the establishment of ACOs in England.

Jeremy Hunt, co-author of a book calling for the NHS to be replaced with private insurance has yet to comment.

Pensioner found dead in home after waiting four hours for ambulance

Paramedics were “devastated” to find a pensioner dead in her home almost four hours after she called an ambulance. The NHS is now in such a state that the Ambulance Service has to use taxis to take people to hospital.

Meanwhile Jeremy Hunt has apologised for the state of the NHS then gone on to say things are now much better than they were.  Theresa May has also apologised but denied there is a problem.

It seems the public will have to discover the truth for themselves because no Government Minister wants to admit the NHS is in a state of emergency.

A former Tory Health Secretary Stephen Dorrell has admitted there is a problem saying “British public services need major rethink and focus on spending”.  (Article   Backup)

Another former Tory Health Minister Dan Poulter apparently has his priorities elsewhere after being accused of putting ‘hand up skirts’.   Could the Tories be any worse?   (Article   Backup)

NHS privatisation soars as private companies win 70% of clinical contracts in England

NHS spending on care provided by private companies has jumped by £700m to £3.1bn with non-NHS firms winning almost 70 per cent of tendered contracts in England last year.

The figures, revealed in a report by campaign group the NHS Support Federation, undermine repeated government claims that private companies play a small role in NHS care provision.

Figure 3 clearly shows a rise to NHS tenders going to private companies and a fall in NHS tenders from 60% to just 36%.

Read the NHS Support Federation 2017 contract report

Richard Branson’s Virgin Care scooped a record £1bn worth of contracts last year, meaning the company now has over 400 separate NHS contracts, making it the dominant private provider in the NHS market.

The extent of Virgin Care’s portfolio has angered campaigners, as the company pays no tax in the UK, and its parent company is registered in the British Virgin Islands – a tax haven.

Speaking of tax – UK tax fraud has risen to £16 billion per year according to the 2017 Annual Fraud Indicator – page 22.  This makes Tory claims of doing something about it rather empty.

Jeremy Hunt accepted £32,920 from Andrew Law a major private healthcare investor.  He isn’t the only MP with such dealings – take a look here for details.

The very same Andrew Law also donated £2,034,785.34 to the Tories (expecting nothing in return of course).  Have a look here for details.

Here is the book Jeremy Hunt co-authored calling for the NHS to be replaced with private insurance.

Here is the price list for your confidential medical files as the Tories sell them off.

No doubt Jeremy Hunt is looking forward to his fourth payrise in two years in return for all the ‘good’ he is doing with the NHS.  Meanwhile those in the NHS who save lives have to ‘make do’.

Department of Health deny ‘formal involvement’ with Kaiser Permanente despite inconvenient proof

Department of Health have denied ‘formal involvement’  with US Healthcare firm Kaiser Permanente.  This is a little inconvenient because we know he’s visited them at least TWICE and we have the photos to prove it.

Here’s the first cosy photo with health secretary Jeremy Hunt pictured with Kaiser Permanente Executive Vice President Philip Fasano.

He enjoyed the visit so much he returned on June 2nd 2014.

Kaiser Permanente proudly show a list of United Kingdom ‘participants’.  Do you recognise any of these?

UK Participants – Kaiser Permanente International.png

Perhaps someone doesn’t like being listed because when we checked Kaiser’s website today they had removed Jeremy Hunt’s photo and the entire list of participants.

What exactly does the UK Government want to hide?

Since the publication of this article we received a statement from NHS North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group (listed as a Kaiser participant under ‘NHS Cumbria’).

[A spokesman for NHS North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) said: “Neither NHS North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) nor its predecessor NHS Cumbria CCG have worked with Kaiser Permanente.
We have contacted the organisation and requested they take our name off the list of participants on their website.”]

We have asked Kaiser Permanente for comment on this and to explain the subsequent disappearance of their participants (shown above) from their website. 

We make no suggestion of wrongdoing by Kaiser Permanente.

Hunt in row with Professor over NHS insurance

Jeremy Hunt is having a row with Professor Stephen Hawking over NHS insurance. He claims one of the most intelligent people on the planet is wrong that the Tories seemed to be steering the UK towards a US-style health insurance system.

This is the same Jeremy Hunt who co-authored a book (read here) calling for the NHS to be replaced with private insurance!

This is the same Jeremy Hunt who accepted a payment of £32,920 from hedge fund baron Andrew Law, a major investor in private healthcare firms.  Law has also donated £2,034,785.34 to the Tories going under various names. Backup to article here which exposes Hunt and other MPs.

This is the same Jeremy Hunt with links to US healthcare system Kaiser Permanente pictured below with them.

Jeremy Hunt “doesn’t know” who will use his £44k taxpayer-funded loo in latest round of Tory splashouts

In the latest round of Tory splashouts comes a £44,000 bathroom suite inside Jeremy Hunt’s office.  Despite the location, Hunt claims it’s not for him and he’s not exactly sure who it’s for.

Ben Baddeley pens another letter to Jeremy Hunt

Ben, 13, has Cerebral Palsy and requires money to pay for his treatment but so far the Tories have ignored his pleas for help.  This has forced Ben to rely on public donations.

He has again written to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt hoping this time he will act.

Ben hopes to deliver his letter directly to Jeremy Hunt.

Ben Baddeley and Jeremy Hunt

Ben has again written to Jeremy Hunt asking for help

Ben writes

Dear Mr Hunt

My name is Ben Baddeley and I’ve written to you before and so has my Mum.

I have Cerebral Palsy and the physio treatment that is helping me to get better isn’t paid by the NHS so my Mum and Dad have to find the money to get me my treatment.

My Mum and Dad are trying to get the CCG to help with paying for it but no-one is paying attention.   It is really difficult for my Mum and Dad to find the money because it’s really expensive and nearly two thousand pounds a month.  My Dad is always working overtime and my Mum has to fund raise.

My Mum has written to the health department and they say there is nothing they can do to help me.  When me and Mum wrote to you we got a reply from someone at the health department saying that you can’t help me either.

But I’m confused because you are the health secretary so why can’t you help me…

Any member of the public no matter where they live in the world can help Ben right now by giving a donation to help his treatment.  If Ben does not receive this treatment he will need a wheelchair as his condition worsens.  All Ben wants is to live a normal life.
