The proposed reforms signal an end to the NHS as we know it. It will not be reformed, it will be murdered. What Lansley’s Bill achieves is the atomising of the NHS. It will be spliced and diced into bite-sized portions to be thrown down the gullet of the corporate sector.
You can read the whole of Max Pemberton’s Daily Telegraph article on why the government’s Health Bill, if passed, means the end of the NHS, here.
If you feel strongly about saving the NHS, make sure you sign the NHS Support Federation’s national online petition. And write to your MP to ask them to vote against the government’s bill when it has its second reading next Monday.
