Not finished reading it yet but a very revealing book, showing that dismantling the NHS has been high on the political agenda for many years.

A must-read for anyone who cares about the NHS, and the way in which current changes are seemingly forcing it into privatisation.

This is an important contribution to understanding the complex restructuring of our NHS which came into full operation on 1 April this year. It is very nicely printed, accessible and easy to read. The contributors whether academics or involved directly in the NHS know their subjects well. Some critics have objected to its approach, arguing it is a polemic based on a left wing ideological stance but although all the contributions offer a critical assessment of the new NHS, they are careful make it evidence based and rationally argued. I know of no other single source which offers such a comprehensive overview of what's happening to the NHS and how it affects all of us as users.

A thoughtful collection of chapters on how a Conservative manifesto commitment - backed by an equally clear Coalition agreement - not to inflict any further top-down reorganisations on the NHS (which was functioning well and very high satisfaction ratings) was turned into the most drastic reorganisation since 1948 within weeks of the Coalition agreement.
A case study of the value attached to manifesto committments by some political parties.

Divided into chapters dealing with various aspects of the process - from the political enabling of private sector involvement, to the acquiescence of the medical professions, and the lack of scrutiny by the media - this book reveals the depth of the deceptions involved and the heroic struggles of some members of the medical professions and concerned individuals to try and stop the piecemeal destruction of the NHS.

This disturbing collection of essays by leading academics is a well focused analysis of the problems besetting the NHS. It is clear from the evidence supplied that the NHS is not safe in the hands of any major political party in this country. The only course of action apart from active campaigning is to support the Green part7y who at least have a coherent polcy about the NHs.

Everyone who cares about the NHS should read this. Very revealing and at the same time sickening to discover the awful truth of this evil destructive government. I note proceeds go to the NHS. I urge everyone to buy a copy.
