An Unholy Mess
“The coalition's NHS reforms, the biggest shakeup of the health service in 60 years, are a "damaging … unholy mess" that will need overhauling in five years' time, the editors of three leading healthcare publications claim.
In an editorial published simultaneously by the British Medical Journal, Health Service Journal and Nursing Times, their editors say the NHS "is far too important to be left at the mercy of ideological and incompetent intervention" and argue ,"we must make sure that nothing like this ever happens again". Guardian 31/1/12
How damning is that ‘ideological and incompetent intervention?’ 
Lansley    claims that his plans for the NHS are "well thought out and necessary." So necessary they did not warrant a mention in the Tory Manifesto. So necessary that Cameron made the pledge, “There will be no top-down reorganisation of the NHS," during the same election. 
So necessary because of pledges made by  Lansley to private health care providers? 
So well thought out we now have chaos and confusion. So well thought out we have one half of the NHS spending money reorganising structures which may well end up being binned. 
Lansley is out of his depth and drowning. He needs to be put out of his misery.
Apply more pressure by taking 2 minutes to sign this government e-petition, calling on Cameron's government to drop the Health and Social Care Bill:
