NHS working hours protections in doubt over 'Brexit'

Comment

I'm not convinced that the NHS itself isn't endangered by this vote, let alone staff working hours. I feel sure that a lot of the brexiteer politicians who were standing behind that 'we could spend an extra £350m a week on the NHS' line, would not have voted to establish an essentially free at the point of use and paid for out of general taxation NHS. And I think that many of those politicians, given the opportunity, would either destroy or 'privatise' the NHS. I've just said much the same, in a rapid response I've just minutes ago sent in to a piece about this by Margaret McCartney: http://www.bmj.com/content/353/bmj.i3551 At least Cameron did seem to support the NHS - as for his more right-wing replacements, John Major's 'hamster and python' line comes [worryingly] to my mind.
