Reforms will 'jeopardise the NHS'

The clamour for the Health and Social Care Bill to be scrapped continues to grow amid claims it might "jeopardise the NHS".

The Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) is the latest professional body to speak out against the Bill, branding it "damaging, unnecessary and expensive".

The medical royal college said that it could not support the Bill, even with amendments which had been tabled in the House of Lords, as the reforms would "cause irreparable damage to patient care".
