Amend in haste, repent at leisure - NHS section 75 saga continues

Abstract

This afternoon, the government published revised regulations under Section 75 of the Health & Social Care Act 2012. The government has hastily re-written these regulations, the first draft of which would have forced commissioners to open just about every part of the NHS up to private sector competition. Howls of protest from grassroots [2] groups [3], healthcare professionals [4], all the [5] Royal [6] Colleges [7], all [8] the [9] unions [10], and even those few parts of the NHS previously supportive [11] of the Act, were taken up publicly by the Labour front bench [12], and (we are told [13]) privately by the Lib Dem leadership.
