End Of The End

What do the regulations do? In brief terms, the regulations require all NHS services to be put out to competition unless the commissioners can prove there is only one provider capable of delivering them. Such decisions could be exposed to costly legal challenges.

These measures are seen to explicitly contradict repeated ministerial promises that “it would be for commissioners to decide when to use competition” and that there was “absolutely nothing in the Act that promotes or permits the transfer of NHS activities to the private sector”.

Just before Easter, Lord Phil Hunt laid down a rarely used ‘fatal motion’ in the Lords, ensuring the regulations will be the subject of a parliamentary battle this month with a debate and vote on the 24th April.

The key House of Lords scrutiny committee has also issued a highly damning report on the regulations and drawn the matter to the House’s attention (read extracts here). Regulations can be struck down by either House and campaigners are calling on parliament to ensure they are revoked.

The first draft of these regulations was hastily re-written following an outcry from health professionals and campaigners last month, but the revised regulations appear little different to most observers (read David Lock QC’s opinion on the revised regulations here).

We spoke to a broad array of health professionals, campaigners, and academic experts who are today speaking out about regulations they widely perceive to be disastrous:

Lords pushed it through.

Thank you Blair, Milburn, Langley and Hunt for increasing the bureaucracy tenfold over the last ten years with needless compartmentalisation, meddling and tinkering in order to make the privatisation of the NHS finally economically viable for the private service sector tax sucking vampires (aka your mates).

Death by a thousand cu(n)ts.

Yep they're all taking a big fat slice and putting the minimum staff and kit into meeting the contracts.

This is why the NHS is such a mess when costs are up so much.


How long would you give an employee for sick leave on full pay, with her job held open for her to walk back into? Oh, and she's not sick - she's not even pretending to be sick - but she's taking the time out to care for her own mother, who is dying.

The lady in question was an NHS administrator. Throughout the three years she was out on that sick leave she continued to get her annual pay increments, and notch up that public sector pension.

No wonder it's cheaper to outsource :wacko: And of course that kind of thing is just one of many huge inefficiencies.
