We are all going to need medical help, sooner or later. So thanks to the Hampstead Group Practice in Fleet Road for hosting the recent meeting at which people grabbed the long-overdue opportunity to ask Camden PCT bosses about issues such as failure to consult patients on the stealth privatisation of local surgeries, and the muddled future of the new Stroke Unit and Physiotherapy department at the Royal Free.
The answers we got direct from the mouths of John Carrier (PCT Chair), Vice Chair Dani Jayes and PCT accountant Liz Wise were a well-rehearsed oil and water mix of 'we know best' and 'we want to be transparent, open-eared and communicate better than before'.
The suggestion that most of the news we have so far got on the PCT's plans has had to be dug out by local newspapers did not go down well. The PCT's rebuttal, that all this information is easily available from NHS websites, is laughably na�ve.
