Britons storm out as Farage reveals the UK’s “greatest crisis”: “Throwing money won’t work.”
Following Nigel Farage’s warning on his GB News program about the “greatest catastrophe facing the government,” Britons have erupted.
The approaching NHS crisis and waiting list backlog, according to Nigel Farage, will “get worse, not better.”
Readers on this website backed the former head of the Reform UK party, claiming that the health-care system needed to be completely overhauled.
Mr Farage made his remarks in response to a report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) warning that there is a vast concealed backlog of patients who have yet to seek care.
According to the IFS analysis, fixing the situation might cost “at least £2 billion.”
According to the IFS, “in the future, expanding capacity will be the only way to reduce waiting lists.”
The Department of Health and Social Care has pledged £9.6 billion to help the health service recover from Covid, according to a spokeswoman.
The severity of the problem is “staring the government in the face,” according to the former Brexit party leader.
“According to a report released tonight, there are already 5.3 million people on NHS waiting lists,” he stated.
“By next autumn, over 14 million people might be on the NHS England waiting list.
“That’s a staggering figure. This issue appears to be escalating.
“The government claims to have invested a billion pounds in resolving this issue, but I doubt a billion will go very far.
“This is without a doubt the Government’s most serious crisis.”
Mr. Farage was backed by this website’s readers, who lauded him as “on the money.”
“Again, Nigel is bang on with his statements, as anyone who has tried to access NHS services since March would know,” one reader wrote.
“What the NHS needs is a professional, streamlined management system,” another user stated.
“Just putting money at it isn’t going to fix it; it requires a complete redesign.
“An adequate procurement mechanism would also be beneficial.”
More readers slammed the NHS’s management and urged the government to invest more.
“It’s time they got doctors off the phone and back to work, before they all become redundant!” observed one reader.
“Cancel the Foreign Aid Budget and spend this £15B+ to fix the NHS – Once the NHS is up to scratch, then consider about Emergency Foreign Aid,” another person said.
Others, on the other hand, were skeptical of Mr Farage’s remarks.
“Is Farage now being supported by private healthcare or is he making a.”Brinkwire Summary News,” one person asked.
