... is Nick Seddon, recently of Reform, from where he has issued a constant stream of
platitude-filled rhetoric review papers. He spent some time working for Circle - who profit* by cherry-picking healthcare services, whilst depending upon NHS infrastructure, critical care capacity and workforce training. Needless to say, Seddon is gunning hard for further privatisation - and has lost no time in spouting PR puff on behalf of his corporate pals.
He also appears to be a schoolboy - and if there's one thing (there's many, of course) that pishes me off about UK politics, it's the preponderance of university-hacks-turned-think-tankers who are given roles in Government. For all his missives on what's wrong with the NHS, I doubt the fresh-faced get has the slightest idea of what it's like on the frontline. He actually makes me want to puke.
*Circle's financial engineering is somewhat opague, e.g. see: http://nhsvault.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/fair-playing-field.html
