Make no mistake David Cameron and the CONdem government intend the wholesale privatisation of the National Health Service. It is privatisation not reform or modernisation.
The plan to give GPs control over the NHS is simply a ruse. GPs don’t have the inclination, time or resources for these extra responsibilities. Should this measure proceed, GPs will simply devolve these responsibilities to private contractors ~ ergo PRIVATISATION. GPs don’t want a privatised NHS and I would urge them to vigorously object to these measures.
It does matter that the NHS is a public authority to the majority of the UK people and it is blatently clear that the CONdems do not have a mandate to dismantle it. Ding, ding. Closing time for the CONdems.
