This is privatisation
HEALTH SECRETARY Jeremy Hunt has proposed new regulations, using secondary legislation under Section 75 of the Health and Social Care Act, that will result in the privatisation of the NHS.
These regulations will force GPs to open up every part of local health services to private companies – whether or not it’s what they or local people want.
If this not privatisation of the NHS, why are these measures only being discussed in the House of Lords and not being debated and voted on in the House of Commons?
