Nearly 400 public health experts warn Lords to reject NHS reforms
In an open letter to peers published in The Daily Telegraph, the public health specialists say that Health Secretary's proposals will put patient safety at risk, waste money and damage trust in the medical profession.
They say that the Health and Social Care Bill, which aims to give more power and choice to GPs and patients by reducing management and opening up more services to private companies and the voluntary sector, will weaken the ability of the authorities to fight disease and tackle health emergencies.
The experts also tell the Lords that the Health Secretary, who will address the Conservative Party Conference on Tuesday afternoon, is wrong to claim that doctors support him.
