"Why are services being cut?"

About: Royal Surrey County Hospital

I went to an appointment today and was told the course of treatment I started in May had been cut. I had wondered why I had not received another appointment. My specialist was most apologetic and I could see their pain that they were unable to offer patients a vital treatment anymore. Their only hope is that someone at another hospital can be trained up to offer the same service. Quite frankly this is disgusting, why do I pay my tax and national insurance? To see highly paid managers in the NHS cut vital services or to receive treatment?

Ditch the managers and use the money to pay frontline staff. How much NHS money is being wasted on paying private firms to contract in? How much money is being wasted on paying high costs for supplies? All to line the pockets of well connected business men.
