Public hospitals sold cheap as Blair lets healthcare decline

The National health service is to sell 46 hospital sites to make them into shops and other private facilities even as we have too few hospital beds.

The petty 400m ($600million) in cash will then in theory help the building of new hospitals, but you can bet Blairs greedy little hands will siphon that off to build some other monstrous piece of junk. Perhaps millennium dome II?

Patients' Association chief executive, Mike Stone, said: "I am horrified."

He went on to say "We need to be reassured that hospitals are not shut before a new generation of super-hospitals is complete."

Dream on, this is about public land and property being sold to friends of the current corrupt London government.
