Sacred cow "sacred"

Will David Cameron explain how he proposes to improve the NHS today rather than promise "improved efficiency and effectiveness"?

"Under a Conservative government, the NHS will remain free at the point of need and available to everyone, regardless of how much money they have in the bank".

No doubt such rhetoric will be comforting for people like Stephen Eeley denied treatment. How will David Cameron's proposals help Stephen's case?

Is there a link between improved healthcare in other European countries and the funding medical insurance funding mechanism? Any status quo within the NHS merely guarantees the jobs of the 1m NHS employees whilst condemning the UK population to an inferior service.
