Over 100 of the UK’s leading Cancer specialists oppose the ‘Saatchi Bill’

According to the Stop the Saatchi Bill Alliance:

  • The bill is about removing patient rights, not giving new ones.
  • It is about absolving doctors from responsibility for their actions.
  • A doctor can act without the support of their colleagues, and be protected by the bill.
  • It applies to treatment for any condition, major or minor.
  • It applies even if there is an existing effective treatment.
  • The major medical, patient and medical protection organisations oppose it.
  • It will not give us a cure for cancer.
  • It will inhibit research, not promote it.
