NHS Health Bill Passed

For the past 14 months, the health professionals had been vehemently opposing the Health Care Bill which has now been passed and have been given a shape of law. The announcement about the approval of the Bill was made by the Deputy Speaker Lindsay Hoyle.

Lindsay Hoyle informed that the Bill has been passed by the Queen and thus the Bill has gained Royal Assent that means it is now a law. The Bill had been causing havoc among the opposition and health professionals since January 2011 when the bill was first placed in the Parliament for debate.

The Bill was drafted by the Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley. Soon after proposing the Bill, he had to face criticism from the health professionals and Labour party also didn’t dither from accusing the government of favoring privatization.

However, since the bill has got Royal Assent, it is impossible for the opposition to get rid of the Bill. Last week, the health workers demonstrated opposition against the Bill. However, the Queen turned her deaf ear to the woes of the health professionals and granted Royal Assent to it today.

At the time when the Bill was under discussion, Andrew Lansley was asked to make a number of amendments, which he did make. It has come to light that as many as 1,000 amendments in the Bill have been made before getting the assent of the Queen.

Still, the health professionals and opposition parties are shocked to hear the announcement. It has been informed that under the new Bill. The government would have the right to form GP commissioning groups, which would have the responsibility of purchasing healthcare for patients and scrap Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). Labour party is still against of the Bill, it says that the bill would cause destruction to the NHS.
