Act now against new NHS competition regulations

Re: Act now against new NHS competition regulations

27 March 2013

Legal advice to 38 Degrees on the government’s amendments to Section 75 found the thrust of creating a competitive market had not been changed.

Without urgent action the process of reconfiguring the NHS into a competitive market will be sealed on 1 April. CCGs will then find themselves unable to fulfill their first duty as doctors, making the care of their patients their first concern.

Support the appeal to the BMA and the Academy of Royal Medical Colleges to make a joint public statement in opposition to the amended Section 75 regulations.
