UKIP wants to charge NHS patients to skip waiting times

Postby perseus » Tue Jul 02, 2013 7:49 pm

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has endorsed an article by the party’s health spokesperson which calls for people to be allowed to pay to skip A&E waiting times.

Last week Farage tweeted an article by John Stanley, a surgeon and UKIP candidate, referring to Stanley as a “UKIP health spokesman”.

In the article Stanley argues that people requiring urgent treatment should be seen within two hours, whereas those requiring non-urgent treatment should be given the option of paying to avoid waiting.

This is akin to privatisation of the NHS (which the Government is doing at the moment), UKIP are more right wing than the Conservatives and therefore about deregulation (removing our rights - employment, health & safety etc). They also regard people who claim benefits as parasites http://johnnyvoid.wordpress.com/2013/03 ... ays-party/

Mistyblue you have written a very similar post on another topic about UKIP, this is against forum rules (please read the rules for basic membership) and this is quite an old post from last year and didnt generate many replies at the time
