Rapid Response:

Catch it, kill it, bin it!

This bill has the potential to destroy all that fundamentally works
in the NHS in favour of the people. That it is comprehensive and truly
national, focusses on population health promotion and not just disease,
is motivated by a service ideology rather than a profit motive. I
couldn't agree with you more. We see clearly the risks of this contagion.
Let's bin it and incinerate it before it infects the NHS.
