Sir Paul Beresford, a Conservative (and a dentist) says GPs are strongly in favour of the reforms.
Lansley accepts this.
This is what the Royal College of General Practioners say, guided by the responses and votes of their members:
More than half of GPs responding to a snapshot survey carried out by the RCGP are concerned that the proposed health reforms will not lead to improvements in care for patients.
Over 50% disagreed that the proposed model of GP commissioning would create a patient-led NHS. More than 70% of respondents said they disagreed- or strongly-disagreed that the concept of ‘Any Willing Provider’ would either achieve a patient-led NHS, or improve healthcare outcomes.More proof that the Tories are liars on this here.
