The NHS as bully boy...


Not that it's a huge deal but the NHS has no power or authority to suppress truth - doesn't stop it trying:

Dan first worked for Forest in 2007. A few years ago, via a third party, he also did some work for an NHS Primary Care Trust. Proud of the work he had done for Forest and the NHS he added both bodies to the client list on his website.

Imagine his surprise when, a few weeks ago, he received a request – prompted by the work he had done on the Hands Off Our Packs campaign – to remove the reference to the NHS from his site. "Working for the NHS and then being funded, albeit indirectly, by the tobacco industry" represented a "conflict of interest", he was informed.

So this business is told that it can't have any NHS business - or even tell the truth that it did some business with the NHS! Seems wrong to me.
