Health and social care bill 2011
This article is a stub. Please feel free to expand it and make it more encyclopaedic.
The bill is opposed by the British Medical Association and the Royal College of Nursing. Clare Gerada, President of the Royal College of General Practitioners is an outspoken critic, and the RCGP snapshot of its members views published on 10 October 2011 suggests its members mostly oppose the bill.
Relatively few medical Royal Colleges opposed the bill outright, at least initially, feeling it better to lobby to improve the bill, rather than to block it altogether. By the end of January 2012, however, their views against the bill seem to becoming more inclined to oppose it.
The King's Fund, by contrast, appears to support the bill.
