Anna Soubry welcomes the next stage of the Health and Social Care Bill

The Health and Social Care Bill gives doctors, nurses and other front line health professionals the power to commission services and treatments for patients. The plans will see less money being spent on managers and more being spent on health and social care. ” it is an important Bill which has been scrutinised in detail. There was considerable scare mongering but after the listening exercise we seem to have allayed unfounded fears and won support from patients and people who work in the NHS.” said Anna. ” the Coalition has always believed in an NHS funded by general taxation and free at the point of delivery, based on need and not the ability to pay.” Get the facts about the bill from http://www.dh.gov.uk/en/Publicationsandstatistics/Legislation/Actsandbi…
