IEA Development Manager Matthew Bowles has written in CapX urging striking healthcare workers to focus their attention on changes to the healthcare system that would see better outcomes for themselves, patients, and taxpayers.

Matthew wrote:

“With the NHS in a perpetual doom loop, a 7m patient waiting list and life-threatening emergency response times, surely now is the time that healthcare staff ought to be lobbying for a change in healthcare system.

“A recent OECD report found that, taking into account the cost of living, UK nurses earn on average €16,000 less than their Dutch counterparts. If health workers are determined to continue disrupting the nation’s health, then they should do it for the benefit of all and strike for free market reform.”
