The Latest Tory Plan to Attack the NHS

This is terrifying:

The prime minister has set up a taskforce to devise plans for how ministers can regain much of the direct control over the NHS they lost in 2012 under a controversial shake-up masterminded by Andrew Lansley, the then coalition government health secretary.

The Prime Minister’s Health and Social Care Taskforce – made up of senior civil servants and advisers from Downing Street, the Treasury and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) – is drawing up proposals that would restrict NHS England’s operational independence and the freedom Stevens has to run the service.

— Denis Campbell, ‘Boris Johnson plans radical shake-up of NHS in bid to regain more direct control,’ in The Guardian.

Looks like Johnson’s life-saving hospital stay has been soon forgotten.
