NHS - Free from government control

This petition had 314 supporters

Successive governments for decades have claimed that their spending on the NHS has increased year on year. Successive governments have repeatedly introduced 'Revolutions' in the way the NHS is structured and managed. As a result of all this meddling, our beloved NHS is in a worse state financially and organisationally than ever before. Waiting times for hospital operations are getting longer and longer, social care for post-operative patients needing help is woefully inadequate, GP surgery appointment waiting times are now extending into weeks rather than days, NHS staff morale is at an all time low. Yet despite the critical state of our health care system, NHS Trusts are being asked to cut budgets by millions of pounds.

The time has come to stop government meddling and for the NHS to be controlled and managed, both structurally and financially, by an organisation totally independent of existing or future governments, with it's own exclusive funding also outside of government control.

We call upon the government to legislate for these changes to enable our much loved NHS to provide the 1st class health service that it's staff want to provide, the UK population crave and future generations deserve.
