Patient's Forums to be scrapped

As expected the government has managed to get the bill to abolish patient's forums through the House of Commons. Even most of those Labour MPs who often rebel voted for the second reading of the bill, as did all the Labour MPs from Cumbria. The other MPs from Cumbria, Conservative David MacLean and the Lib/Dem MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale voted against.

This is not good news for those who want to be able to campaign to protect hospital services.
