NHS staff on strike

Today sees the second of two 24-hour strikes by NHS workers over the transfer of NHS Logistics to courier firm DHL. It is privatisation of sorts, but not so much 'by the back door' as the cliché goes, more by driving a large truck through the front gates. And that's not what the NHS is or should be about.
But a more fundamental point... DHL??? Expect deliveries of the items they're expected to courier to turn up several days late on a day you've not arranged to be in, turning up in Carlisle when they're supposed to be in Oxford, or left in bins if no-one is in to collect.
