As the Guardian notes:
The public sector union Unison today said it would go to court to try to block the coalition government's plans for a radical reorganisation of theNHS.
The union is applying for a judicial review on the grounds that the consultation process conducted by the health secretary, Andrew Lansley, is a sham.
Consultation on plans to give GPs control of £80bn NHS spending runs until October, but the Department of Health has already indicated the plans are non-negotiable. Unison claims this makes the process unlawful.
Thank goodness they’re fighting back!
This is privatisation - and it will be a disaster – and cost us all a fortune – as health care in the US does. There’s no better place to fight cuts.
