In the Scotland edition of the i today, we read that Patricia Hewitt, a former Labour (New) minister has recommended, in a review, that NHS England just abandon targets. They’ve been ignoring a few, such as hospital-onset Covid figures, and fiddling others, such as A&E waiting times, for years now, so this is a the logical conclusion to their strategy.
That a former Labour (New) minister chaired the review, tells us that Labour shares the Cons’ desire to just hide the collapse of state-provided health care, and will say nothing.
The BBC, not even BBC Health, and UK press (not even the Guardian), other than the i (below), are not covering this review sneaked out when the Con Government think no one is watching.
Imagine such a thing in Scotland where BBC and other MSM health reps will insist NHS waiting times failures (only failures) are in the public interest and must be headlined.
