The real conspiracy of NHS England

Comment

No problem giving my real name. You are of course right that there is no conspiracy. It is simply open Tory policy and opportunism. There is no way that chopping pensions, reducing budgets and staffing, clustering into nice convenient sized chunks and aligning IT systems to mine information usable by private providers could in anyway be preparing general practice for larger providers to swoop in with APMS contracts. There is no way that the NHS is becoming simply a brand under which large private providers are picking off what they see as the juicy profitable bits. There is no way for example that these larger groupings could ever be changed to a cheaper to provide GP lead not delivered service... oh no. Nothing in the direction of travel suggests this at all. As to how much access I have to insider info, probably a little bit less than you. As to how much you have, only you can answer that.
