MiP calls on the Government to abandon its Health Bill

‘MiP has always been opposed to the Bill, because it is risky, unnecessary and costly. Nothing has happened to change our minds,’ says MiP chief executive Jon Restell

As the Health and Social Care Bill returns to the House of Lords, Jon Restell said: ‘The Government should do itself a favour and abandon its plans. Instead it should talk to the health service about how to safeguard quality care and meet extra demand when there is no new money.’

MiP warns huge cuts in healthcare managers will put patient safety at risk

MiP warns ministers that they are getting rid of the very people who can deliver the Government's reform plans, maintain high quality and safe services for patients and save £20 billion

Responding to today's announcement on the design of the NHS Commissioning Board, revealing 50 per cent cuts, Jon Restell, MiP chief executive, said: 'This decision is another product of the Government's mistaken belief that the NHS does not need management. What's incredible is the Government itself identifies these risks, but does nothing.'
