Stop The Health and Social Care Bill. Last Chance to Act!

It’s our last chance to stop the Health and Social Care Bill – at the House of Lords.

British Medical Association: “We remain concerned that the Bill presents unacceptable risks to the NHS and continue to call for the Bill to be withdrawn. The three main areas of concern relating to the Bill and the government’s wider approach to NHS reform are:

Inappropriate and misguided reliance on market forces

Unintended, knock-on impacts with longer-term consequences such as the impact on public health and medical education and training

Over complexity and bureaucracy following recent changes to the Bill”

Dr Peter Carter, general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing: “We still have very serious concerns about where these reforms leave a health service already facing an unprecedented financial challenge. This bill risks creating a new and expensive bureaucracy and fragmenting care. This fragmentation risks making inequalities worse, and preventing health providers from collaborating in the interests of patients.”

Dr Clare Gerada, chair of the Royal College of General Practitioners: “We continue to have a number of concerns about the government’s reforms, issues which we believe may damage the NHS or limit the care we are able to provide for our patients. As a college we are extremely worried that these reforms, if implemented in their current format, will lead to an increase in damaging competition, an increase in health inequalities, and to massively increased costs in implementing this new system.”
