Wirral patients' views are disregarded

I FEEL that I have to support the letter from Dave Steel regarding the GP practice in Pensby.

Are we to go down the same road as The Warrens?

Patients unable to get appointments to see the doctor that they request unless booked well in advanced.

Patients have left the Warrens and moved to other practices frustrated and angry by the disregard of the patient's views by the Primary Care Trust.

You will not only go down the same road as the "Warrens" you will go to the "Warrens" before very long.

There will be no other alternative.

Remember this medical super clinic was built curtesy of the PCT with Private Finance, that means the NHS do not own it, nor do the GPs who use it, but in order to pay for this luxurious accommodation there is a 30 year mortgage that you me and our following generations will be paying this mighty bill to a private investor who is estimated to make over a thousand percent minimum profit, probably even more by the end of the term of the mortgage.

The new Fangled GP Consortium will be obliged to pay this ever ongoing mortgage first and foremost out of the money allocated to them from Central Government, so this means they will cram all the Patients from miles around into this one clinic location.

The New St Catherines Hospital is another example of lunacy.
This building will house the huge administration that once was the PCT and now becomes the GP Consortium, with an army of Procures, Buyers, and Medical Suppliers purchasing from the Private Commercial Organisation and Businesses from around the world, just another step on the route to Privatise what was once the National Health Service.

Oh and just to add insult to injury, those nice GP Doctors who used to work out of their own premises, very often big houses bought from the NHS at much reduced rates, have been allowed to sell those properties to move into the super new GP surgeries and Giant Clinics, without making any contribution to the cost of the new buildings. Good isn't it.

All done with Smoke and Mirrors and of course Public Money.
