Nick Triggle at the BBC reports on the NHS being opened up to the market in a very positive way, demonstrating a pro-privatisation bias, despite widespread opposition to the plans from the majority of the general public, the British Medical Association, the Royal College of Nursing, and the Royal College of GPs.

His analysis goes on to almost excuse the predicted rise in waiting lists and decline in service, by saying "Such problems will probably be blamed on the reforms. But in reality in many cases it will be hard to tell whether the changes have helped or hindered performance."
