The Liverpool Echo has the story – see link above – but it is far from being the whole story!
Question – Which political party pursued the privatisation of GP services in the NHS when last in government? Answer – Labour.
Question – Name a community which was subject to Labour’s GP privatisation project? Answer – Maghull.
It’s as though Labour has zapped all their NHS privatisation policies from their own memories and then flipped over to condemn NHS privatisation! It is a fact that more of the NHS has been privatised under Labour. It is also a fact that here in Sefton Central constituency we were meant to be a big part in Labour’s NHS privatisation push of GP services.
My posting of 5th October 2012 refers:-
I really do think that the press are letting Labour off by helping them forget their previous crimes when in government. The problems being faced on Merseyside as a consequence of NHS privatisation of GP services were started by Labour when in government.
And this is the same Labour Party that has failed to pledge the £8bn needed to keep the NHS afloat!
