Doctors Grow Backbone


After decades of adopting a non-confrontational approach to governments of whatever political persuasion, the doctors' union has finally got off the fence. It seems the BMA is concerned with plans to hand over large chunks of the NHS to 'any willing provider' (likely to mean large private health companies in many cases). Their concern, they say, is not ideological - it's merely that the proposed reforms are untested. It seems their views are shared by a large and growing group of Lib Dem MPs, many of whom voted against the Health and Social Care Bill last night. Other Unions are also taking a strong stance against the bill, and many are sending contingents to the big march against NHS cuts next Saturday
