Peril or pearl?

Apparently the NHS could be in peril.

“The NHS could be “in peril” if the government’s plans to overhaul it are derailed by doctors and nurses’ organisations, a group of GPs piloting the reforms has warned.”

NHS “FACES PERIL” IF REFORM PLANS ARE DERAILED.

The Guardian article does not mention exactly who these GPs are apart from the fact that they are already participating in clinical commissioning groups.

However, if you switch over to The Telegraph, you find they are a group of “senior GPs”

“The letter has been signed by 56 GPs who are helping set up clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) across England. Under the Bill these will effectively replace primary care trusts (PCTs) and be handed their budgets.”

Reading further, The Telegraph indicates who was behind the letter.

“The letter was organised by the NHS Alliance, which describes itself as “an independent non-political organisation proud to be at the forefront of clinically-led commissioning”.

NHS “IN PERIL” IF HEALTH REFORMS FAIL, WARN SENIOR GPS

Who is The NHS Alliance, My Black Cat?

Are they just a little tiddly group of doctors who are full of their own importance?

Or are they thinking doctors that a witch might respect?

Go and do what you always do when you are studying the art and science of Intertwinglements, My Black Cat.

And see if you can find a little pearl that might amuse a witch…………

    Revealed: Government Secretly Uses Doctors to Spin Tribal War for NHS Hearts and Minds (oh! And £80 Billion)

    “…Tribal, the outsourcing firm with £150m worth of government contracts, supplied a list of friendly GPs to Bill Morgan, Lansley’s special adviser. Morgan is a former lobbyist for private health companies and Tribal confirms that it was in discussions with some of the GPs on the list about future lucrative contracts….
    “…However, a complex web of private companies, lobbyists and front groups is trying to shape the reforms through a revolving door between those targeting the £80bn pot and the politicians and civil servants responsible for doling it out.”
