George Monbiot on Polyclinics

A “MUST READ” SUMMARY IN TODAY’S GUARDIAN

It is good that George Monbiot thinks it is important to continue to write about polyclinics, because his ability to transfer his thought processes to pen and paper is exceptional.

In today’s Guardian, he has a piece called “The Great Consolidation”

WHAT MORE CAN THE GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN?

OH YES, DOCTOR’S SURGERIES

Below are a few snippets to whet your appetite.

It puts everything that is happening under the aegis of “The NHS Plan” in sharp perspective.

SHARP PERSPECTIVE

Are you old enough to remember Beeching?

“But we haven’t seen anything yet. We are about to be confronted with the biggest shutdown of all: the government has started the process of closing England’s network of doctors’ surgeries.”

A little paragraph says it all. Hide the important bit right in the middle. Then neither the punters who read forwards nor backwards will get to it!

“If you know nothing of this, don’t blame yourself. The announcement was buried in an interim report published last October by a health minister(1). The report was 52 pages long, and the policy was explained in a single paragraph on pages 25 and 26.”

About Lord Darzi’s “consultations.” The dead citizen’s jury in Birmingham perhaps. The evanescent report that has gone “walkies” on the WWW.

“The policy was launched by Ara Darzi, a colorectal surgeon who has been raised to the peerage and made under-secretary of state for health. He wrote his interim report in three months, during which he claims to have spoken to thousands of people. But it contains no record of who they are, how they were selected or what their answers were: he reveals only that “their views have helped shape this interim report.”(3) His final report will not be published until June, but the Department of Health has instructed England’s primary care trusts (PCTs) to advertise for bidders for the new polyclinics by May 2008(4): the first notices have already been posted in the Health Service Journal.”

The “for profit” and the clandestine “not for profit” multinationals.

“What mysterious hold on policy do the corporations possess, that they can persuade this government to wreck Labour’s finest achievement and damage its chances of re-election?”
