Health Service Managers vote overwhelmingly to reject the Health Bill and ask you to vote to examine it in committee.
Please forgive this intrusion into your in-box! However, as you come to vote on the passage of this crucial piece of legislation we thought you would want to have details of our poll seeking the views of health managers about the Health and Social Care Bill. It is the biggest and most inclusive poll of NHS managers opinion.
Say that the Bill should be withdrawn.
Nearly 3,000 took part in the biggest and most comprehensive measure of health managers' opinions to date.

NHS managers have just as strong a sense of vocation as their clinical colleagues. The future of the NHS is vital to them and their families. They are concerned the Bill will fragment the NHS, damage clinical linkages, does not enhance patient choice and will cost more to operate.
They say the NHS delivery architecture has been damaged by redundancies, demoralised talent leaving an insecure workplace and changes already half implemented without Parliamentary authority. However, a fall-back position of Integrated Care Organisations, salvaged from the remaining PCTs, boundaries coterminous with local authorities, would be deliverable in the short term, with Doctors pre-eminent in commissioning and a management cost-cap geared to turn-over. This could be achieved without legislation, more costs or upheaval.
