MPs call for NHS budget re-think

MPs have suggested that GPs should not be allowed to take control of the NHS budget all by themselves.

The House of Commons' health committee said they should be joined by a range of staff including nurses and hospital doctors to decide how funds are spent.

The move would improve accountability and decision-making, the MPs said.
