GP: General Practitioner;3/11/2011, p34
The article presents the author's opinion on the impact of the Health Bill on inefficient healthcare units or hospitals. The author believes that it is time for inefficient and weaker units to go as the society gets no benefit if poor-quality doctors, nurses or managers continue to practise. The author compares it with biological evolution where only the strongest individuals survive and weaker face a demise.
