Clinical Commissining Groups = CCGs

Dear Mr Black

I know Her Majesty (or at least her Government) wants to curb expenditure.
They could not care less how the patients cope.

The “Commissioners” are superfluous layer of nominees unaccountable to the public.

Let them be abolished. If NICE is doing its job, then who needs these “Groups“?

Remember the BONFIRE OF THE QUANGOES promised once?
Many Guy Fawkes' Days have come and gone.
Let these CCGs be abolished. Let doctors use their CLINICAL JUDGEMENT.
