Jeremy Hunt says there is no magic bullet that can sort out the problems in the NHS.
He's wrong. I can tell him exactly what the NHS needs. The money that has been pulled from the system over the last decade needs to be put back. The same goes for the money pulled from social care.
We not only need a medical system that is properly funded but we need social care so that people who are not ill enough to stay in hospital but need support can be cared for either in their homes or in residential care.
Where can we get the money from? Well, Jeremy, we could start by collecting all the taxes due to us from the large companies and rich individuals which currently -fiddle the system- use tax avoidance schemes. Far more money would be available if we scrapped Trident. Just think what we could do with £240 billion.
We are amongst the richest countries in the world. There is no excuse for our welfare system to be in the current state of collapse.
