Wes Streeting Orders 'Warts and All' Probe of NHS

Health Secretary Seeks 'Hard Truths' to Fix Service

Wes Streeting has ordered a comprehensive investigation of the NHS to uncover the harsh realities of what needs to be fixed. Calling the service 'wrecked,' Streeting appointed top surgeon Lord Ara Darzi to conduct the independent review and provide a full assessment.

NHS Transformation into an Engine of Growth

Streeting aims to transform the NHS into an engine of economic growth rather than a financial burden on taxpayers. He plans to deliver billions in growth to the Treasury and help millions of people get back to work by improving healthcare and cutting waiting lists.

Challenges and Solutions

With over 90% of sick note requests approved by stretched GPs, Streeting pledges to utilize private sector capacity to alleviate NHS pressures. Despite facing criticism, he denies claims of potential patient charges and acknowledges that pulling the NHS out of crisis will be a gradual process.
