More Tories express reservations about NHS reforms

The slow-motion car-crash that is Andrew Lansley's 'big bang' reorganisation of the NHS - that the government comprehensively failed to mention prior to the general election - is continuing to garner more concern from across the political spectrum.

Sarah Wollaston, a Tory MP has already warned of the danger that GP consortia will be led into handing over control to private companies and now the cross-bench Health Select Committee - chaired by ex-Tory Health Secretary Stephen Dorrell MP has joined numerous other health groups in expressing deep concerns over the planned reforms.

Lord Robert Winston has also penned this piece for the Mirror stressing the need to avoid more organisational change - something that the National Audit Office is likely to endorse in its report due later this week.
