GPs face ban on routine bariatric surgery referrals amid CCG review

Comment

So let's get the terminology correct - this is RATIONING, and EXCLUSION of services, and is totally against the principles of the NHS that care is available and free at the point of need. 'The best decisions for their area?' - no: in NHS terms these are surely invariably wrong decisions, whichever way the decision falls. NHSE shouldn't be hiding behind weasel words.
