NHS chiefs have today called for the government to implement its winter plan B to protect the NHS.

NHS services are reaching breaking point in many areas, waiting times are often months long and many aren’t getting the treatment that they need whether for Covid or other unrelated illnesses. Some estimates are that the NHS will take 10 years or longer to fully recover from the pandemic. Further damage will take longer. During the NHS recovery period, we will all be affected in one way or another. Outsourcing to the private medical sector means that this is often not quicker option and of course we must protect those who can’t afford private medical treatment. 

Simple measures such increased mask wearing and working from home would help to protect the NHS this winter and secure its future, without impacting significantly on freedoms of the British public. Failure to do so, SAGE warns in its 9 September minutes means that “late action is likely to require harder measures”.

Measures should be introduced immediately now as a matter of moral principle. 

Confirmed victory
