King's Fund Report - Patients must not pay price for Ministers' NHS mismanagement

This is exactly what I warned would happen when the Government chose to focus on a back-office reorganisation over protecting the frontline.

They chose the worst possible time to reorganise the NHS when it most needed stability, people were distracted from focusing on the financial challenge.

The Government’s incompetence means patients are paying the price for a loss of financial control through random rationing and increased restrictions on treatments across the board. Patients must not pay the price for Ministers' mismanagement of the NHS.
