NHS Confederation: We must keep dialogue open


NHS Confederation chief executive Nigel Edwards comments on controversy surrounding the government's NHS reforms:

"The idea of harnessing the power of markets and competition to create change has underpinned much of recent healthcare reform in the UK and other countries.

"But in this country the debate is unhelpfully polarised, characterised more by assertion and dogma than by evidence.

"The issues seem poorly understood and opportunities to improve care could be lost unless we achieve a more constructive dialogue."
