The Budget and health services

Listening to Darling defend/explain his budget, I found the implications for health interesting. Darling says that front line services will remain as they are, with "efficiency savings" i.e. cuts to come from the admin/bureaucracy bits.
Sounds fair, especially as we are always hearing about the need to cut the bureaucracy out.
Of course Mr Faceless Rent-a-quote from the Tories rubbished it and demanded huge cuts, but i just don't think big cuts in the public sector are the way forward, ESPECIALLY at the moment when the private sector is contracting
