A reminder that David Cameron will be making five pledges on the NHS in a ‘keynote’ expected this week (possibly tomorrow (Tuesday)). Things like..there will be no privatisation, and an end to waiting lists etc.
The Economist’s ‘Leviathan’ blog – which is always worth a look – takes a rather derogatory view of the Prime Minister’s five-a-day prescription, calling it mood music.
I read it as a sortof high-five to the NHS to rebuild confidence. But it will be the stuff between the lines that we’ll need to look out for, since this will hint at the conclusions drawn after the recent ‘listening exercise.’
