The X-ray factor

Bio: My name is Youssef El-Gingihy. I am a GP working in London. I am the author of How to dismantle the NHS in 10 easy steps published by Zero books. http://www.zero-books.net/books/how-dismantle-nhs-10-easy-steps The book tells the 30 year story of how the Nhs was converted into a market based healthcare system and how the Health & Social Care Act enables the final step of universal insurance coverage. I have recently been on ITV News, BBC Radio & The Keiser Report - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG3X95kd6yw . I have published a number of articles in The Guardian and elsewhere. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/mar/30/health-act-means-death-of-nhs http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/youssef-elgingihy/nhs-future_b_7895946.html http://newint.org/blog/2015/07/14/how-to-dismantle-the-national-health-service/ http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/views/opinion/personal-health-budgets-are-a-wolf-in-sheeps-clothing/20010484.article#.VapCpHi9LCS http://newint.org/blog/2014/10/28/russell-brand-liberal-majority/ http://mediadiversified.org/2015/04/02/the-nhs-election/ http://www.pulsetoday.co.uk/political/will-2015-be-the-last-nhs-election/20009917.article This is my new political blog – The X Ray Factor - with a short précis below. The inaugural blog is entitled ‘How to dismantle the NHS in 10 easy steps’ about how the NHS has been insidiously converted into a market-based healthcare system. This process is accelerating under the Coalition government and the very existence of a National Health Service is in danger. The blog will focus on capitalism in crisis. From the financial crash and the Eurozone crisis to the Arab Spring, from austerity and cuts to the cost of living, from privatisation to the outsourcing of public services, from the destruction of the NHS to the dismantling of welfare states; we are living through a seismic period of global crisis and unrest.
