Birmingham Erdington MP, Jack Dromey, says that Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley, is not welcome in the city.
"Lansley is not welcome in Birmingham, promoting a bad Bill that threatens the future of the city's much loved National Health Service. The doctors, nurses and hospital surgeons are right. Patient care will be put at risk because the NHS will be fragmented as privatisation replaces co-operation"
Tory Health Secretary Andrew Lansley is to visit The Queen Elizabeth Hospital today.
