As the NHS stumbles from one funding disaster to another sacking thousands of nurses, a rather ill-timed press release arrives in Guido’s email from Rosie Winterton MP (Minister of State for Health Services) and Patricia Hewitt, the Secretary of State for Health. This week sees the 60th Birthday for the NHS and they have baked a cake. Hope it tastes better than the usual hospital food.
Is it really a good time to be celebrating and sending out smiling pictures, with the current news? You would think that they would want to keep a low profile.
