Andy Burnham Pushing Andrew Lansley for Making Amendments in the Social Care Bil

Dr. Sam Everington, former adviser to the Health Secretary has wrote a letter to the Prime Minister David Cameron asking him to scrap the proposed Social Care bill by saying that the bill is devastating the focus of the health sector.

As per Andrew Lansley's proposed bill, greater responsibilities should be given to the GPs. It has been proposed that GPs should be given the right to set the budget and look after the finance of the NHS. For quite long, Dr. Sam Everington had been supporting the bill but now he has asked the Prime Minister to do away with the bill.

The bill has caused stir among the medical professionals. However, the GPs from Tower Hamlets have expressed their support for the bill. It has been unveiled that about 11,000 primary care clinicians are supporting the controversial bill.

While criticizing the bill, the Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham said, "Even doctors who were in the vanguard of Mr. Lansley's changes are now deserting him and adding their voice to the Drop the Bill campaign. It is humiliating for the Health Secretary."

With the pursuit of wining the support of the GPs and doctors, several amendments in the health bill have already been introduced in the controversial bill. However, recently Nick Clegg and Shirley Williams asked the Health Secretary to introduce further amendments to which Andrew Lansley nodded in support of the changes.

Later on, questions were raised over the new amendments to be made in the bill. Concerned MPs have said no to further amendments but the health Secretary has already given his words to the Liberal Democrats.

Andy Burnham has asked Andrew Lansley to convince the MPs for the further changes in the bill which would prove beneficial for the working of the NHS.
