In its current condition of being in dire need of major structural reform, the Hand Of Hancock should finally seal its fate.
His interventionist but incompetent micro-management will merely increase producer interest capture, but decrease patient outcomes.…
Fluoride in water, health warnings on sausages, & 'orders to prevent obesity'.…
With #lockdown-fanatic control-freak Hancock in direct charge, the #NHS will become the vehicle for authoritarian behavioural 'nudge'-Govt.
Whatever its ostensible healthcare rationale, also cynical political move leftwards by Tories.
Obviously calculating that with voters softened up, by success of Covid-scaremongering, for greater State role in public life, they can reap electoral benefit by taking direct control.

"#OrganDonation is an altruistic act that should be celebrated..." (p6)

So why not do that, and devote more resources to making donation easier - an approach that has delivered measurable results - instead of a regressive move to #OrganHarvesting?…
Describing a *significantly narrowing* shortfall (cf. graph, also p6) in available organs is not a justification for a change to #OrganHarvesting; nor are emotive appeals. This reads like #PolicyBasedEvidenceMaking.
"We want... to change the culture around organ donation in this country in the longer term." (p7)

Stopping it being a gift, freely given, and instead the State 'deeming' you to have given permission will certainly change that! Presumption ain't 'donation' and will erode trust.
