Notes to accompany Pulse Article 4: Why is the press so compliant?

The notes are to accompany my article published in Pulse on 30/11/12. The text will appear in the blog on 7/12/12.

The Department of Health’s press release, December 30, 2011. I suggest you read this through, and then look at the articles that were published:


A Westminster GP Ruth O’Hare said:

“This initiative will mean that commuters working in the heart of London will in future have far greater flexibility around their choice of GP, enabling some to choose to see a GP closer to where they work.

“I welcome this exciting initiative which the Department of Health is resourcing as it offers patients greater access to NHS care at a time and place that is convenient to them.”
