Continued privatisation of the NHS

This week's Health Service Journal makes depressing reading. Despite rumours that the Brown government was getting cold feet about private involvement in the NHS, things seem to be continuing at a pace. This is a selection of the headlines this week:

Established GPs prepare to feel the heat of big business
GP tendering could herald new era of competition for practices
GPs urged to refer directly to the private sector
Acute trust to privatise all elective ops

4 out of 11 headlines from the first five pages of the journal are on privatising services...

So much for Brown's socialist principles.
