Then why are we going through all these lockdowns and imposing restrictions on people then?

Maybe if the NHS was better run and not under funded we may be able to cope

Apparently there's more managers than enough and they are on a massive salary.
According to some in the know they are crippling the NHS.

That's been known for years, it's not secret what they are getting and are not even necessary.

Then there's the NHS getting overcharged on drug prices.. Some people have no morals and love ripping off the taxpayer for their own obscene profits.

Would privatisation and competition not put an end to all this?

Privatisation is the wrong word to use really because there's not many who would choose for the NHS to go down that road.
Competition might work if we could outsource new markets because the cost of prescription drugs are astronomical so anything to get that bill down.
