The next few weeks are critical for the future of networks


When the government realised that they had botched up healthcare provision in the UK through their mismanagement and squandering of the healthcare budget (a lot of it went straight into their pockets) their immediate instincts were for more centralised control, more collectivism, more “community” (that’s where the word “communism” comes from incidentally).. What can be more collectivist than “networks” that can be more easily centrally micromanaged by government? This of course comes with a big trade off. A confiscation of personal liberty and the inevitable backlash we are now witnessing. Ditch government involvement from our profession folks. In its entirety. Failure to do so will mean prolongation of this agony with further backlashes and resentment in the future.
