Question about the NHS. When Boris announces he is giving them 3 billion what is it actually for?

Presumably they aren't rushing out to buy staff or MRI scanners and we keep getting told they are all heroes working non stop 12hrs a day, so no scope for overtime.

So what does this extra money actually do?

Helicopter money to feed the toxic debt spiral.

Seeing as the NHS spends the best part of £130bn a year...I suspect.. not much...

But no shoes for @JoeDavola!

Don’t get me started. 

The build up on shoes I waited months for are wrong. Hip aches when I wear them for any period of time. Gonna have to measure the build up, compare to other pair and then see if my boot mender can tweak the build up.

But that won’t be any time soon as the boot mender along with all other non essential businesses are being forced to shut for a fortnight because freshly heeled shoes kill granny or something.

Anyone local with a 3d printer?

NHS anecdote : Colleague with a knee problem. Not critical but becoming debilitating. After six months of telephone only consultations at local surgery and recommendations to take iboprufen they finally got to see a GP in person who after examination referred them to a specialist. First available appointment is April 2022.

NHS £140bn a year and rising.....

Another one. My mum's boyfriend had rotten wisdom tooth. Could not get an NHS appointment, so had to go private to get it removed. 350 quid.

It's worth about a penny. I mean every penny.

This is what I'm afraid of with the shoes; and why I keep slim - I know my gait is a bit 'off' but the NHS offers no help with analysing that so I could be wearing my knees/hips down in a way that causes problems say 20 years down the line by which case I'm fucked and the NHS won't be able to do anything then either.

Couple years back I was waiting to pick up a pair of shoes and an overwieght guy in his 50's walks in on crutches. I get chatting to him and he'd had orthopedic surgery as a child but then went 30 years with the wrong kind of footwear setup and weight distributed on his knees/hips in an awkward way, and by the time it became obvious his knees were fucked and all the NHS could offer him was a pair of crutches.

So that's why I occasionally invest in good private physio advice, and why I always wanna have a 5 figure sum in the bank so if there did come a time I needed medical treatment that had a direct impact on my quality of life I wouldn't have to wait years for the NHS to get back to me.

I've come to the conclusion that it's deliberate policy for three reasons:

1 )  If they make you wait 2 years but you have enough money,  you might just go private instead. Ker-ching..  NHS manager saved them £15k.

2 ) If they make you wait two years,  it might get better on its own.

3 ) If they make you wait two years,  you might just die in the interim.

 

What's the upside for NHS management if they treat you immediately?

It's not like the consultants are that busy..  just see how quickly they can fit you in if you go private..

Do you think death rates from bad treatments will drop?

Will people realise death without radiation is actually not as bad as with?
