Regulations governing how GPs work are being changed
with no opportunity for debate or discussion by our elected MPs.
The proposed changes seem to allow ANYONE to provide GP services through an Integrated Care Provider contract. The Department of Health’s Directions about this explicitly note the OMISSION of any list of those who are ineligible to provide primary care services.
Centene - assisted by executives from its Spanish subsidiary Ribera Salud - is looking to acquire primary care and mental health companies in the United Kingdom. Last year Ribera Salud appointed the former New Labour Health Secretary Alan Milburn to its Board of Directors, to help it “continue with its expansion plans.”
