According to Pulse private sector providers are angry at the decision and intened to launch a challenge based on NHS competitor laws. David Worskett, director of the NHS Partners Network, said: "PCTs are looking to close health centres simply because they seem to be the easiest things to close but this flies in the face of the Government’s own commitment to take into account patient choice."

What a bunch of scumbags!

We didn't get a choice when Darzi poly-clinics were set up, yet the privateers are ready with a legal challenge as soon as their profits are threatened!

What about someone taking out a legal challenge against the govt's decimation of the NHS Constitution & the Patient Charter, & its wholesale privatisation of the NHS itself?
