I am a follower of MSE and believe that
you provide a god service to millions of people. However I am greatly unnerved
by the promotion of private Health Insurance. There has been decades of
propaganda against the NHS particularly by the Conservative Party many of whom
have investments in Private Health Insurers. The propaganda takes every
opportunity to tell the story of a failure to deliver NHS except on
Vaccinations. Evidence by the Kings Fund and others tell us that in fact the
NHS is the most effective and efficient Health Service in the World. Its
failings are mostly due to underfunding.
I am not suggesting that the NHS does not
make errors, it does and so does the private sector. We do not seem to realise
that staff trained in the NHS work for the Private sector thereby financially
supporting it. The expertise learnt in the NHS is used by the private sector
with no return.
I am most surprised by your private
health insurance promotion because this will have a direct impact n less well
off people who cannot afford private health insurance because as private health
care is used then less people will be invested in the NHS and the
politicians will have less cause to fund it properly.
So, I have worked in the NHS
[DELETED BY FORUM TEAM]. I have witnessed the on going diminishing of
the NHS and politicians have tried hard to dismantle it usually with a dreaded
remodelling which often leads to demoralisation and slowing down progress.
The lead item on Private Health Insurance on this weeks MSE and the size of it suggests to me that the sponsors recognise what a trusted organisation you are and Martin Lewis is as a result they want to use it to promote their interests. This is not surprising, but it is a surprise to naive me that MSE are running with it.
