Re: Lansley’s NHS “reforms”

The editorialists write: "The NHS is far too important to be left at the mercy of ideological and incompetent intervention." But as Chris Ham, Rudolf Klein, Keiran Walshe, Martin McKee and many others have written in this journal over the years, ideology and politically incompetent intervention are almost what characterise the NHS.
