Standing up Against NHS Privatisation

The BMJ have published an article I have written about the ongoing privatisation in the English NHS.  The onslaught is relentless and appears to be speeding up - perhaps to get as many contracts sold off prior to the General Election in 2015.
Every campaigner and patient I speak to about this privatisation are opposed to it. No one has been asked whether they want their NHS to be sold - remember it wasn't in any election manifesto for the 2010 General Election and no party won a majority. The Health and Social Care Act was sprung upon a surprised medical profession and electorate.
We must continue to fight for our NHS - it is too precious to lose.
