Health service reforms 'will set the NHS back'

A former chief executive of the NHS says the government's proposals for the health service in England are a "mess," "confused" and "will set the NHS back."

Lord Crisp was the NHS chief executive and the permanent secretary at the Department of Health between 2000 and 2006.

The NHS plans will be debated next week by peers, who have called for changes.
