Lansley on the run - write to your President now!

Lansley's disastrous Bill appears to drifting towards the rocks, the BMA, RCN, RCM, Unison and Unite already oppose the Bill.  The Colleges are not covering themselves in glory with their failure to oppose the Bill.

Now is the time for them to stand up, be counted and represent their members and the people of this country by openly stating their opposition to this destructive and incoherent Bill of idiocy.

It will not take long to email the Acadamy of the Medical Royal Colleges and your specific Royal College President to pressure them into opposing the Bill, so get emailing and do it now:

Everyone:(AOMRC) academy@aomrc.org.uk

Medics:     enquiries@rcplondon.ac.uk

Surgeons:   president@rcseng.ac.uk

GPs:        president@rcgp.org.uk

Anaesthetists: president@rcoa.ac.uk

Psychiatrists: cchurchill@rcpsych.ac.uk




Here is a brief letter template:


"Dear President

I am writing this email to complain about your abject failure to oppose Andrew Lansley's Health and Social Care Bill.

If you fail to publicly oppose this Bill then I feel you are failing your members, your patients and yourself.

Yours."

Have done - with my real name.

I think my Royal College has led the way here, with Clare Gerada being superb.

Apparently the RCPsych is going to conduct a survey of members, although I'm not too reassured by some of the president's* comments:

"The future of the NHS, which clearly has to now be in partnership with the independent sector, the voluntary sector, and social enterprise, is so important."



* The president is now Sue Bailey.
