This undercover reporter has obtained documents showing that the NHS is near to collapse.

Owing to the success of the pro-female recruitment campaign, 75% of trainee doctors are female. In a study recently published, however, it showed that female doctors work on average 48 hours, whilst male doctors work on average 68 hours.

A spokeswoman commented,"if this trend continues, we will be forced to cut-back our services to men in order that we can continue to provide a high quality service to women. Of course only male doctors can treat male patients and as there are less and less male doctors coming through the training, unless we cut back on male patients, the NHS would collapse.

"We are extending the segregation of male and female patients further to also save money and will now treat male patients only in prisons where we can guarantee that they will attend their appointments. We are also concerned about the closing in life expectancy gap between men and women and will cut back on smoking and alcohol prevention and treatment programmes for men to also save money."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
