The Broadcast PR Business is at the forefront of health news and events in the UK and around the world, and while we do not hold political opinions we are happy to report significant changes in the health service when they occur.
Our interview with Dr Clive Peedell, Co-founder of The National Health Action Party is significant as it is one of the first to be broadcast via our web site and youTube. It is available to view on www.broadcastprbusiness.com
In it Dr Clive Peedell talks about winning over the arguments with the public as the party officially launches today (Thursday) at the Palace of Westminster. In opposing the Health and Social Care Act, because he believes it will break up the NHS, Dr Peedell says aligning themselves with the founding principles of Bevan will ensure a fairer system for all who use the NHS.
‘Choice is being forced on patients – they don’t want this – and it will drive up costs. When you are feeling poorly, you want a good local hospital’, Dr Peedell says.
When asked whether the public will suffer from compassion fatigue over the issue and wonder whether as patients they will be put first, he responded: ‘As doctors we will always put patients first – if the Act is not repealed, patient care will be harmed’.
