RCP to survey fellows on Health Bill29th February 2012
The Royal College of Physicians have voted 80% to 16% (with 4% abstaining) to holding a ballot on the Health and Social Care Bill.
The ballot of the RCP's 26,000 members will determine whether its members will continue their "critical engagement" with MPs or be completely opposed to the bill. Sir Richard Thompson, the president of the RCP, said: "It was good to see so many fellows being so passionate about the NHS. We have had an extremely good debate, during which people expressed heartfelt views on the Bill and the impact it will have on the NHS. We shall survey our members and fellows as soon as possible and I shall take the further concerns of the meeting to Council."
