RE-ENTER DR FOSTER

My Black Cat and I remember well when Dr Foster appeared on the scene. We didn’t know who he was. We ignored him because we thought he must be some kind of crank from Gloucester.

Anyway over the years it seemed as if Dr Foster was one of the ingredients in The NHS Pantry. We were right about that because Dr Foster became the NHS partner that ran NHS Choices.

However this year they lost the £80m contract to continue for a further three years.

My Black Cat thought she could do the job for a fraction of that but no-one seemed to be interested.

Anyway, Capita won the contract, and last week it was announced that NHS Direct and NHS Choices were to join forces.

BUT ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR

And this government embraces the marketplace in health.

So no doubt they, and Capita, will be pleased to see some healthy competition.

GOODBYE, NHS CHOICES.

HELLO DR FOSTER HEALTH.

“Lord Darzi’s report talks about the importance of competition in the NHS. We are coming from that angle, providing a comparative view and focusing on patient choice and competition between hospitals.”

Are you rubbing their noses in it, Mr Young, by any chance?

No?

Competition is healthy for health?

Of course it is…………
