    No desicion about us without us.
    If the reforms really want to help ‘the front line staff’ as they so often claim then why not try listening to our points!!
    See the link for the BMA’s main objections, in independent body representing US.

    patient choice is a misleading term, it’s choice of where you get treated not how

    • nikki jenkins says:

      Not so sure on that Sue. I WOULD LIKE to be treated at a hospital, any hospital, not involved previously in my negligent care/cover ups BUT despite requesting this, the only two options I get are the two involved in my negligent care. Got to keep me in the “circle of deceit”. I get no choice…so I refuse care.

    Dear anyone in Wessex there in an open panel discussion on the NHS reforms at Southampton General hospital May 25th 6-8pm, Lecture Theatre one. Our speakers include Wendy Savage of Keep our NHS Public, A representative from the DoH, two leading GPs involved in commissioning and a labour MP. It should be a very interesting and thought-provoking discussion!
