As it levers the NHS open to EU competition law, who is democratically accountable for its £120bn budget? Who is to answer for its quality or failures?
We\’ve had 60 odd years of politicians commanding this and that. And we\’ve ended up with what we\’ve got now. We want to get politicians out of the day to day provision of health care: that\’s the whole point of what is being done.
Instead of some dictat issued by a wet behind the ears barrister from Streatham (imagine Chuka being a health minister?) we actually have professionals, who know what they\’re doing, running health care.
This is the dman point.
