Commenting on the Prime Minister's decision to invite only a handful of trade bodies to his health summit this afternoon (Monday), TUC Deputy General Secretary Frances O'Grady said:
'If the Prime Minister genuinely wants to work with health professionals on his NHS reforms, hastily convening a meeting with the few doctors' representatives who have not yet called for the Bill to be scrapped is not the way to go about it.
'He is excluding representatives of the one and a quarter million nurses, midwives, porters, cleaners, physios, paramedics and others who have just as crucial a part to play in the NHS and whose views are just as important.
'The Prime Minister is becoming more like the emperor with no clothes - only listening to those who will tell him what he wants to hear.'
