Health reforms could damage NHS, warns draft risk register

Emergencies in the NHS could be less well managed under the government's controversial health reforms, according to a draft version of a risk register on the bill (PDF) which has been leaked.

Labour claimed the register served as a "damning indictment" of the health reforms which recently passed into law after a bruising parliamentary battle.

The warnings about the threat posed by the bill were issued in a draft version of the risk register, dated 28 September 2010, which was leaked to the health writer Roy Lilley.

The government has been criticised for refusing to comply with a ruling by the information commissioner to publish the Transition Risk Register, drawn up on 10 November 2010, after an FOI request by the former shadow health secretary, John Healey.

1. You bet it could

I hope this goes viral.

I remember, in the 80s, owning a T-shirt bearing the legend: 'WARNING: HM GOVERNMENT CAN SERIOUSLY DAMAGE YOUR HEALTH SERVICE'. Sadly, even more true these days.
