A film by Anne-Marie Sweeney produced for Keep Our NHS Public and Health Emergency
Sugar Coating the Bitter Bill.
Louise Irvine is a GP in the deprived area of New Cross. She shows how trusted GPs are being used to sugar coat the denationalisation of the NHS, proposed in the government’s Health and Social Care Bill.
Dr Irvine explains with care and compassion, how this bitterly unacceptable bill will harm patient care and break up 'the NHS family'.
Simply and without jargon, she makes clear why local GPs will actually have less control over their patients’ treatment if it is not scrapped.
Dr Irvine reveals the serious implications that this will have on patient trust.
