The article focuses on the views of the author on the rules and regulations of Great Britain's National Health Service (NHS). Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt has accepted that NHS output has not risen despite the additional annual £48 billion spent on it by the Labour Party. Contrary to expectations, a bonfire of regulations and a culling of regulators would improve the NHS's output and standards.
