The NHS is like a national religion and some people believe it is immune from criticism.

We should all be proud of the NHS but it is far from perfect, particularly regarding its levels of bureaucracy, inefficient procurement and poor management

The usual personal attack on anyone attacking the left's sacred cow. Amusingly it's this arrogance that will finally destroy the NHS.

Another negative media news story. lots of things may happen. This is an absolute guess at best, might as well just go all out and say quadruple!!. Covid will ease and back log will start reducing before it doubles. Why not report this as an option???.

"A centre-right think tank" - this was the point that I switched off from this article. So they're ideologically aligned to one particular outcome and are using the smokescreen of Covid in the media to manipulate public opinion into achieving it. Sneaky.

And how do you suggest they are staffed without reducing the capacity of other hospitals.

You can't just magic up a whole bunch of nurses and drs when you need them, and due to brexit we just shipped a bunch home
The Nightingales were a measure designed to scare the public about Covid, "look folks Covid is so dangerpus we need extra emergency hospitals" they were a psycologicical play on the public, likewise with those emergency morgues, were they used - no

All designed to scare, make us complict, and then impose measures such as health passports which would be electoral suicide if put to the vote

Once again the BBC has come up with some ludicrous half-baked story just to satisfy its own obssession with making something up to satisfy its own left-wing poltical agenda.

It's about time the public were given a choice about whether to pay the licence fee for this morally corrupt organisation.

The Nightingales were a tool designed to scare the public about Covid, its dangerous we need more beds, they were a psycological play on the public, likewise with the emergency morgues - were they used no

Both were ploys to scare the public & make us more complicit, then to impose things such as health pasports which would be electoral suicide if put to a vote
