GP tells Andrew Lansley NHS reforms are 'wonk'

The GP and comedian Dr Phil Hammond has told the Health Secretary Andrew Lansley that the medical profession is "deeply suspicious" of the planned NHS reforms which he described as "wonk".

He said there was no convincing narrative explaining the reasons for the changes and that the reforms focus on competition rather than the collaboration and co-operation needed for an integrated service.
