SCUNTHORPE – England – In a bid to cut costs, the NHS will from now on only treat healthy people, Health Minister, Rodney Benting, has revealed.
“If you’re not healthy, then I’m afraid we cannot treat you,” David Sanders, chief executive of the Northern England Health Trust told the BBC.
The latest NHS ruling is a positive development in cost cutting that could benefit the Health Service and bring it back from the brink of bankruptcy.
“Instead of treating people who are actually sick at great cost to the NHS, we will only treat healthy people who basically need minimal or no treatment thus saving huge amounts of money. Hospital beds could be freed up in minutes, and there would be hardly any need for such things as operating theatres,” Mr Sanders revealed.
The new NHS rules will come into effect next week across the UK.
