Re: As someone who works in the NHS

She's not talking about a move away from clinician led leadership, but a move away from clinician led care altogether. "Partnership approaches" is code for "privatising your healthcare provider" and "encouraging personal responsibility" is dog whistle for "cutting essential services".

For the NHS to work effectively it can't be "just" free at the point of care. It must be a publicly owned body operated purely for the public good. These kind of views are how you go about parceling up the valuable bits, selling them off to your new mates from Sweden and then leaving the rest to crumble and die.
