So Gordon Brown has said that the NHS is to be his number one domestic priority; good.
He has said that he wants to listen to health professionals ; good.
He then says that he wants to extend NHS Direct, which any health professional will tell him is useless, wants to expand drop-in centres, which are both useless and dangerous (since they eliminate continuity of care) and wants GPs available in the evening and at weekends ( which may be good, but has only just been ended by the government with the new GP contract).
If Gordon really wants to listen, I am available to talk. I look forward to it, and I promise not to charge as much as the management gurus who have been wreaking so much havoc on the NHS.
I am standing by for the phone call.
