The independent review found Improving the health and well-being of 1.4 million NHS staff could potentially save over half a billion pounds every year.
David Cameron, the Conservative leader, said the figures were “very depressing” but reflected broader problems with public health in society as a whole.
He told GMTV: “They are very depressing figures, and they show that the NHS itself has to do better.
“But I think they also reflect a light on a problem that is society-wide, which is very bad public health outcomes in our country, whether it is smoking, diet, weight, alcohol, also the issue of sexually transmitted diseases, we have very bad public health outcomes in Britain.”
He added: “We need to have an approach that says of course the NHS is absolutely vital in the nation’s health, but we do need to protect those public health budgets, and make sure we are making progress on things like smoking, diet and obesity, all the things that will put pressure on the NHS itself in the future.”
The more healthcare news we see coming from the UK the more I don’t want their type of health care here in our country. Why does Obama and the democrats want to force UK type socialist health care onto us? Does anyone have an answer!
