Almost two-thirds of doctors feel less "empowered" than they did before the Government's controversial health reforms, a new poll suggests.
Ministers said that the Health and Social Care Act would put doctors in the driving seat but only two months after its implementation, 65% of doctors feel less empowered than they did a year ago, according to the British Medical Association (BMA).
Two thirds said they wanted to make changes or improvements in the last year but were unable to, with red tape and lack of capacity listed as the top barriers for making enhancements.
