Pulse reports that the Local Government association want the final say on commissioning performed by GP consortia. It seems unlikely that Lansley is likely to do this, but it is interesting to see that various groups really do not understand what "liberation" is supposed to mean.
Guys, it is quite simple: Lansley wants to remove all public accountability for the NHS so when the shit hits the fan he can say that no Conservative had anything to do with it. That means Conservative councillors too, you know.
Lansley really had better let his Tory chums in local authorities know more details about his master plan.
