In particular, I believe that great credit is due to the Secretary of State for making decisions which run counter to orchestrated public relations campaigns but which do take full account of the position of University College London hospitals 'as a world centre of medical teaching and research' - and for that reason 'ensures that UCLH have a secure future'.
Under questioning, Mrs Bottomley said 'a managed market has always been the intention of the National Health Service changes'.
That should be good news for all - not just London.
