Sugar Coating the Bitter Bill.

What are many local GPs really thinking about Andrew Lansley's Health and Social Care Bill?

Louise Irvine is a GP in the deprived area of Deptford's New Cross. She believes that trusted local GPs are being used to sugar coat a radical denationalisation of the NHS.


Dr Irvine explains, with compassion, how this bitterly unacceptable bill will harm patient care and break up 'the NHS family'.

Simply and without jargon, she makes clear why local GPs will have less control over their patients’ treatment if it is not scrapped and reveals the serious implications of this on patient trust.

The film is a powerful account of how the patient/doctor relationship, at the heart of the NHS, could be seriously undermined by this legislation.

If you want to know just why so many people in the NHS are in opposition to Lansley’s Bill, then take 15 minutes to watch this video.

Find out why the bill will be hugely costly to the NHS budget and will seriously damage our health.
