Other Declarations

I'm a member of Doctors for the NHS (ex NHSCA) which campaigns for the restoration of the NHS as a publicly funded, publicly provided and publicly accountable service. I fervently believe that we do many things to patients that are unnecessary and often harmful, and that we should do less, but do it better.
