How to Dismantle the NHS
in 10 Easy Steps

How to Dismantle the NHS in 10 Easy Steps

Dr Youssef El-Gingihy tells the story of how the NHS has been gradually converted into a market-based healthcare system over the past 25 years. This process accelerated under the Coalition government and the very existence of a National Health Service is in danger. He fears that there will not be an NHS as our generation grows old and certainly not for our children. Yet the British public remains largely unaware of this and the media, with few exceptions, has failed in its duty to inform them.

The NHS is being broken up into an universal insurance system based on the American model. This book matters to all who use the NHS or are concerned by the privatisation of public services and the dismantling of equitable healthcare and welfare. If you want to understand the real story behind the headlines and find out how you can preserve the NHS for the future then this book is essential reading.

Youssef El-Gingihy is a GP working in Tower Hamlets. He studied medicine, neuroscience and English literature at Oxford University and completed his clinical studies at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ in London. He has been working in the NHS since 2006.

How to Dismantle the NHS in 10 Easy Steps is published in paperback by Zero Books at £7.99.
