Labour's shadow health minister Liz Kendall has raised concerns about whether the measures being unveiled today will be possible to enforce, and will save money:
We will have many questions to ask about the details when they are published but the key tests for their proposals are: can they be properly enforced and will they save more money than they cost to put in place?
The public and NHS staff must be confident that any new measures are about getting taxpayers a better deal and ensuring fairness, not playing politics with our NHS.
