  1. Whilst I am probably light years away from the author’s political persuasion, I am very concerned, as he is, by the ongoing developments re the NHS in Cornwall. The author states the following:
    “This is because “healthcare providers” would not be paid per treatment, but by a ‘Whole Population Annual Payment’ – a set amount for the provision of named services during a defined period. This, it is argued, unlawfully shifts the risk of there being an underestimate of patient numbers from the commissioner to the provider, and endangers service standards.”

    More should be heard from the Cornwall County Councillors in this most important matter of safeguarding the population of Cornwall.
