Labour consults on plan for major NHS restructuring Labour will flesh out how it would dismantle Andrew Lansley’s structural NHS reforms to bring more health provision back in-house, in a wide-ranging consultation on NHS restructuring under a future Labour government. The shadow health secretary, Jon Ashworth, said Labour had now rejected the possibility of working within the existing structures, calling them unfit for purpose, and said the party would consult in the coming months over how it could re-establish a universally public NHS. The party is committing for the first time to a wholesale restructure of the health service. Viva Life !! Eight years of tories trying to dismantle the NHS is coming to an end. We are going to get our health service back.
