The National Health Service Thirty Years On . . . You Can't Have It If You Let Them Eat It 1973 Tories cut £111 million. 1974 Labour promise expansion--they restore £47m then later make a further cut of £75. 1975 Initial projection for 1980s does not indicate any expansion of the NHS--revised figure for 1978-9 represents a cut of £152 m over the original plan. 1976 White paper project 20% cut in capital expenditure by 1980--they cut £20 m more. Inflation--eats into advance budgeting. Private Practice--drains resources: private beds subsidised by up to £50pw; NHS facilities, equipment and staff used by consultants for their private patients. Drug Companies--exploit the NHS: 19 manufacturers found to over-price by up to 145 times the open market price; over 1/3 of drugs considered "undesirable", ony 58% found to be effective.
