Public health specialists axed

Cameron 11 September 2010: "[We need] a horizon shift – moving away from short-term calculation to taking the long-term decisions that will ensure Britain's success".

As he wrote that, the Department of Health confirmed that 100 public health specialists (leading programmes dealing with alcohol misuse, teenage pregnancy and others) were being axed.

Might save a few quid, but just how 'long-term' is that?
