I have someone very close to me who is involved in healthcare in quite a big way. He has been to see Lansley and argued against the NHS Bill. He has also presented to the Health Select Committee and has a lot of info on why the NHS Bill is a terrible, horrible idea.
He believes the reason they are refusing to publish the Risk Register is because it contains the closure of possibly 50+ hospitals.
This is a big deal and we need to be talking about it:
Is the non-publication of the risk register because it contains the closure of 50+ hospitals?
