Rod Stewart Sounds Determined To Make Things Right

During a phone-in with Sky News, Rod Stewart expressed his opinions on the situation of NHS and revealed what he did to help and make an example. He also called out the government again for not properly fixing the problem.

The musician, who recovered from cancer in the past years, previously stated that his illness was treated successfully thanks to an early diagnosis, which he claimed many people could not receive because of NHS’s situation. Stewart complained about the issue and called out the government a few weeks ago in an interview with Sky News.

Following his statements, he revealed that he paid for some of the MRI expenses to help with the situation and to prove that he is ‘not all mouth and trousers.’ The singer explained that if this action becomes successful and gains support, he plans to do it in more places in the UK.

His words on the matter were as follows:

“I walked in and said, ‘I’m terribly sorry, I’m half an hour late.’ They said, ‘Don’t worry, there’s hardly anybody in here today,’ There were eight people with hardly anything to do. Then I thought this is a terrible injustice, so here we are.

If this is a big success, which I think it will be, I’d like to do it in Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, and just keep it going, and hope some other people follow me. Because I want to prove I’m not all mouth and trousers and that’s why I’m here to prove that I followed through with it, OK folks.”

Stewart also discussed nurses’ pay and indicated that their hard work is not valued enough. The musician asked the government to do something about both of the issues and challenged the prime minister to take action.

During the phone-in, the singer added:

“There must be enough money in the coffers to pay up for these nurses – only two years ago we were clapping and now … bless them, they work so hard, salt of the earth.

We’ve got to sort this out, really. We’re in dire straits. If I am going to get political, I think we should send the Ukrainians F-16s. It’s up to you, prime minister.”

As someone familiar with NHS and health industry workers’ conditions, Rod Stewart strongly demands the government fix them. He supports his words with his actions and clearly expects others to do so.

  1. Bravo Rod! As a retired nurse in USA I know what they go through. They are not paid enough for some of the crap they get handed. Some areas of nursing may not be as difficult as hospital nursing where you see shortages. There is already a shortage in nurses and there isn’t the encouragement to entice the profession. Sadly.

  2. Sir Rod,
    In my eyes you are one of the most fantastic people in this whole world. There definitely not enough good people like you in this world!!!
    I have loved and respected you for almost 50 years and will forever and ever!
