NHS reforms another case of legacy chasing - Campbell

December 6, 2006 11:56 AM

Commenting on Tony Blair's speech on reconfiguration of services in the NHS, Liberal Democrat Leader Menzies Campbell said:

"This is another case of Tony Blair trying to carve out his legacy rather than doing what is in the long-term interests of the NHS.

"We need long-term planning, not permanent revolution in the NHS.

"Since 1997 this Prime Minister has been chasing headlines by ramming reforms through the system at a damaging rate, casting aside the opinions of health professionals and disregarding the wishes of local people."
