(not satire – it’s George Osborne!)

George Osborne announced last week he was going to devolve responsibilities and funding for NHS healthcare in Manchester to local authorities.

The only problem is, it turns out he omitted to consult with the local medical committees about the proposals.

Local Medical Committees are the professional organisations which represent individual GPs and local GP practices.

Which means Osborne completely forgot to consult the main professionals affected by his proposals – namely GPs.
