Dr Rant has drawn my attention to this excellent piece yesterday by George Monbiot in the Guardian. The government's policy regarding the establishment of polyclinics is not so much about privatisation - as GP practices are already private - but about corporatisation. And it certainly is not about giving the punter more local choice as local GP practices are forced to close and punters have to travel further to attend a polyclinic. And as polyclinics take over some of the services offered by local hospitals so thje government can close down valued local hospital services ... tomorrow is election day.
