Profiteers behind NHS England missing paperwork scandal

NHS England chiefs tried to cover up more than half a million missing medical letters, it seems.

Internal courier 'NHS Shared Business Services' - a private company - wrongly warehoused them instead of delivering them. The correspondence apparently includes thousands of important test results and diagnosis reports.

Yet again, we find that private profiteers cannot be trusted with public services. Nor can unaccountable senior bureaucrats.

And Tory health secretary Jeremy Hunt also faces accusations of involvement.

Kick out the Tory thieves. Scrap the anarchy of Blairite Labour's NHS 'internal market'. Take the whole health service into public ownership - under the democratic control and management of workers and service users.
