Healing The NHS: Alan Johnson Listens To…

by | 29th, May 2007

THEY’RE talking about the NHS in Sheffield.

Alan Johnson, the Education Secretary, called for a “proper dialogue” with health workers, who still felt undervalued. He suggested that the Government “listened a bit too much to the BMA [British Medical Association] and not enough to unions like Unison. Maybe what we should be doing is bringing the unions in the health service much more closely into the social partnership”.

That’s right. The way to make the NHS more efficient, better run and modern is to listen to the unions.

But not the patients?
