It was reported today – BBCNews – that the NHS has been spending £17 on gluten free pizza bases and £2.50 for comparable loaves of bread. Typical of a ‘big organisation out of control’. This is our money they are wasting – not that the need is not valid, but the approach is not appropriate. But one should not just complain unless you have a better suggestion – so here is mine. Why not launch an NHS special food’s website from which people can order what they want. Subsidize the prices as before but use the power of a partner like Amazon to manage the logistics for you. For sure the £2.99 books I buy from them cannot cost the same to deliver as these NHS foodstuffs – reported to be 3-4 times the cost of the item itself. What do you think Mr Lansley?
