NHS Deficit – HEWITT TO RESIGN

That was the
promise she made to the nation in November last year. 

This item in the Guardian
from 22 Nov 06.

Patricia
Hewitt told MPs yesterday that she will resign as health secretary if the NHS
in
England does not break even
financially by March.

Her commitment came under
cross-examination by members of the Commons health select committee concerned
that the NHS's half-year accounts showed a third of NHS trusts are forecasting
deficits totalling almost £1.2bn.

The worst Health Secretary this nation has ever seen, taking lessons from Gordon Brown and fiddling the books just doesn't do it.


We now call upon Hewitt to fulfil
at least one promise in her political life. RESIGN
