The much vaunted NHS “listening exercise” has come to a close. To mark the passing of this landmark, Andrew Lansley gave the following interview to the BBC. Does it sound like he has been listening to the British people? He finishes by saying:
“If the principles and the vision is there, it’s very important then not to interefere with that”
So what exactly has been the result of Lansley’s consultation? Was it just a sham? Or was it merely a “pause”?
