Cameron said he wouldnt reform the NHS. So what a surprise, he has plamned the biggest NHS reorganisation for decades.
Labour used to reorganise institutions every couple of years, it looks like ministers have taken positive action when it really means lots more work for staff.
So will GPs know how to run hospitaks better than the PCTs? Possibly, but thats not the point. They have more important work to do. Leave managers to manage, doctors and nurses to care for patients.
One of my first posts on this blog was after watching "can Gerry Robinson save the NHS". One of the problems he found was that consultants had too much power, they arranged surgery to suit themselves.
With Doctors in charge I expect that they may vote yet more pay rises for Drs, while keeping nurses and other health workers pay low. Thats not fair, Doctors have seen huge pay increases recently.
Cameron said he would save the NHS, it doesnt look like it to the rest of us.
