    53,000 NHS jobs 'facing the axe'

    not sure if this is the right place to post
    but after reading about this today and many other job cuts planned

    Changes to child benefit
    Cuts to the public sector and public services
    £18 billion cuts to benefits
    Cuts to our armed forces
    Changes to housing benefit
    Increases to VAT

    So, they take £18 billion from benefits but, they plan to take just £2.9 billion from the banking sector, the very people who brought this country almost to its knees!

    Yeah i wouldn't have thought this belonged in deals, maybe misc would have been better

    it's happening everywhere, not just NHS

    i was due to go into Police but they made cuts and now can't take me on

    therefore i've got to rethink my career!

    maybe a Libyan style riot would do the trick?

    It's time that the NHS started employing more frontline staff rather than packing it out with pen pushers. That's why they are overspending. The trusts are spending vast amounts of money on Chiefs rather than Indians and still can't manage their budgets.

    As an NHS penpusher, I think we need to get rid of lots of my fellow pen pushers anyways.

    some truth there, however the primary reason is that the population is NOT getting smaller or younger and as it stands the NHS serves the entire populace so inevitably it will always cost more. Hey ho the same old short sighted BS

    I agree with the changes to child benefit - and I will be one of those affected.

    And the budgets increase to reflect this..........however, year on year less ends up with front line services.

    The NHS Dentists budget increases like the rest.......the fact that not everyone can get one is down to the profession taking the money from privatising and a lack of people training as Dentists to meet demand.

    2 the postcode lottery of drugs
    3 increased costs of pharmaceutical drugs
    4 increased costs of technology
    5 increased of on-call etc staff travels claims
    6 increased costs of energy bills
    7 increased costs of linen services
    8 increased costs generator fuels and maintenance due to more use of electrical technology
    9 increased life expectancy
    10 Suppliers increasing costs to NHS as it is seen as a cash cow

    the budget increases don't allow (just as a taste) for pretty much 90% of that list every year

    There is nothing wrong with benefit cuts.

    You have got to love one of the line of text on that site

    "So, they take £18 billion from benefits but, they plan to take just £2.9 billion from the banking sector, the very people who brought this country almost to its knees!"

    They are paying far too much to those on benefits, which is in reality what's caused a lot of this mess in the first place. This site looks and sound to me like it was set up by a benefit scroungers.

    Enlighten me, what's wrong with taking money from benefits?

    At least the banks have been productive over the years.

    Banks create jobs, pay taxes and generate wealth. It's not nice that we're reliant on the financial services industry, but it's a fact of life.

    The welfare state has grown out of control. Benefits need to be cut. In the future, pensions will go to - that's the result of an ageing population and a worldwide marketplace.

    So are you saying that people like this woman should be able to keep their benefits then?

    dailymail.co.uk/fem…tml

    In case you don't check the link, this woman gets £800 a month in benefits, doesn't have any reasons by she can't work, and has walked out of several jobs. Her mum "tops up" her benefits to the tune of £1200 a month

    I don't understand what the two figures you've compared have got to do with each other

    old news

    someone needs to sort the mess labour created!

    OP is seriously deluded if she thinks anyone else could do a better job!

    Maybe its the benefit cuts that get her most lol

    about time too I say!

    Personally, I think parts of the NHS do a very good job and so should have their money protected as a reward of this. The parts that are failing would then see money being cut and so they would have to change things pretty quickly in order to get any funding.

    Regarding benefits, please do not associate everyone on benefits with the lazy ones who know how to play the system. I know someone will ask and yes, I am on ESA, housing, council tax and DLA. But there are people like me who are genuine cases (I have a very rare incurable neurological illness and because of this and its treatment to control it, employers tend to not be able to work with me in finding time for me to have off I need) and so have to use the safety net provided by NI contributions. Mixing the two up can offend people.

    And the budgets increase to reflect this...........


    No its not - I think the increase in the NHS budget next year is something like 0.1% which isn't even going to cover inflationary costs.

    On a more general note, eveyone knows that Tories love capitalism and hate public services. The country got what it voted for no point complainig now - wait 5 years and vote for someone else .

    And of course the great thing for the politicians is that the next lot can blame the last lot for everything.......

    You know what I'd like to see - perfomance related pay for politicans. If inflation, unemployment, GDP etc hits certain targets they get extra pay......maybe they should practice what they preach. Although to be honest this wouldn't make any difference to most of them as they have other more lucrative sidelines....

    maybe the NHS should work harder and better then.
