That's the aim of the 2012 Health and Social Care Act, which compels health service commissioners
to put NHS services out to tender, and makes it easier for Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to close or downgrade a hospital.
HEALTH SERVICE commissioners
should provide services to treat minor eye conditions in high street practices nationwide to reduce pressure on A&E units, the LOC Support Unit (LOCSU) has highlighted in a national campaign.
I am grateful to the expert group for devoting time to this task; they will be meeting with the medical staffs who deliver this service, health service commissioners
and parents representatives in order to hear a wide range of views on this important service.
