NHS changes 'high risk'

Critics have renewed their attacks on the government's overhaul of the NHS in England as Parliament prepares to debate the reworked plans.

The Health Bill is due to be discussed by MPs over the next two days after ministers made a series of concessions at the start of the summer.
