    From an objective legal point of view, the NHS reforms are something we should all be worried about.

    So you saw the government are taking a controlled 'pause' to reflect on the wicked NHS reforms they are trying to push through.

    Let me tell you something about these despicable reforms: once complete, our HEALTH SERVICE will need to be regulated by EU Competition law. There will be a market free-for-all meaning seeing private companies undercutting the NHS providers and a race for the bottom.

    Do you want your health service contracted out to such an extent that Competition is introduced meaning a race for the lowest prices and logically the lowest quality service?

    It's time people understood how evil these reforms are to the NHS and the catastrophic consequences which may ensue.

    you missed out the part where all procedures will have a strictly regulated price....so no-one can charge less (perhaps not even more) than the stated price that is set by the govt.

    Great so we have the Tories with a piss poor social record and Labour who no one seems to ever trust with the economy.

    Great choices.

    It would appear you misunderstand how competition works.

    The health sector would be about providing the highest quality of care at the lowest possible price, it would most likely reach a compromise which benefits the vast majority. I'm actually in favour in allowing companies to compete freely with the NHS, it can only benefit the customers.

    Also, are there any sources for this information?

    And when one contractor will always be getting government money no matter what, don't you think that's bad for service standards? Isn't the best way to improve this having several providers compete to offer the same service to the British taxpayer, but for cheaper?

    Some people are just so misinformed it's unbelievable.
