Re:Catch it, kill it, bin it!

I agree entirely. The Bill should be scrapped completely. It will
destroy all that we know and love about the Health Service:

. impartiality

. quality

. value for money spent

. investment for the future

. past experience of systems and staff skills

. trust of the patients and staff

. training passed on to new staff by seniors

. innovation and development based on

. secure structure

. inclusion of BAMER patients needing level playing field

. values drawing on human rights rather than finance

Please fight this Bill for all we are worth! The NHS must be saved
from it.
