The noble Lord may be right. If the change in wording applies to how the management behaves but makes no change in clinical priorities-the noble Lord, Lord Kakkar, said that it would not interfere with clinical priorities-I would support it. It is necessary to ensure that management acts like that, as long as it does not cut across the clinical priority that the sickest person comes first, whether private or NHS.
