GP group take over £6.4m out-of-hours contract from private company

Comment

Dr Deborah Colvin, who led the campaign to win back out of hours care, said: ‘It’s about local GPs being involved, people who understand that area and know the other GPs in that area and actually get to know the basic patients in that area.’ Fantastic for patients in that part of London however strategically not tendering for it may have been better long term. The Cons do not want the privatization of the NHS nor the oncoming winter crisis to be an election issue. The outcome is what Hunt and Cameron would have wanted. They do want to dismantle the health service longer term for their Eton, Oxbridge and City friends otherwise why the HSCA when no top down re-organization was promised by Cameron at the last election?
