As A Doctor Facing The Nightmare Of NHS Cuts, Jeremy Corbyn’s Policies Give Me Hope

These policies won’t just bring the NHS closer to its founding commitments, of being publicly funded, publicly provided, universal and free at the point of use. They will direct money right back into patient care. Without spending billions on PFI debt or wasteful deals with the private sector, NHS Trusts can spend it on beds and staff. Attracting more staff to the profession, with decent pay and working conditions, will enable the NHS to spend less on expensive agency staffing arrangements. And investing in a truly fair and well-resourced social care system – funding it properly and making it an integrated service – will enable hospitals to discharge patients quicker, freeing up beds and saving resources.
