In a furious tirade on TalkRADIO on Tuesday, the commentator revealed how he became fed up with the British public “clapping” for the NHS over the Coronavirus pandemic as well as treating the health service ritualistically. He went on to demanded reform in the health service as he stressed the NHS is not fit for purpose amid growing waiting lists following the pandemic.
Mr Robison said: “We should call it the national Covid service at this point because it is all about protecting the NHS!”
“The NHS is no longer protecting the people!”
Mr Robinson went on to claim how there are undiagnosed people dying of “very curable, very treatable diseases” because they are not being seen by their GP’s or referred to specialists due to Coronavirus.
He said how Britain has become “obsessed with Covid” at this point before claiming is it having a detrimental impact on the health and wellbeing of the country.

Mr Robinson added how, despite the fact he supports the concept of universal healthcare for millions of Britons and the NHS being a good idea on paper, it is in need of a raft of reforms.
He slammed: “We put it on a pedestal at this point – it has become a religion!
“Some people stood outside on Thursday evening clapping for the NHS, that is ritualistic!”
He went on to accuse the NHS of becoming “the Golden Calf” adding that it has been “untouchable for so long” and not been held to account.

“It is not protecting people, they are not healing people because we are leaving people on waiting lists due to this nasty virus.”
He went on to demand reform to clear the health service of what he branded was “full of bloat and waste” as he insisted there are positions within the NHS that are untenable.

Mr Robinson then took aim at what he claimed was the NHS “funnelling money” into “diversity, inclusion and equality officers” as he concluded his tirade.
In an interview back in May, Cancer Professor and Express columnist Karol Sikora told Express.co.uk that he fears the healthcare system has been damaged badly by the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic.
He said how backlogs of “about 5 million” in the NHS will have a devastating impact on delivery of healthcare in the coming years but he stressed we wont know how bad it is “probably for two or three years”.
He went on to say that avoidable cancer deaths, as a result of delayed appointments and surgery, could number between “30,000” and “5,000” in an upsetting outlook for the UK’s health.
