Is the NHS now safe from EU-US trade agreement (TTIP)?

The quick answer is no! A letter has been leaked from the European Commission that appears to suggest that the NHS will be unaffected by the EU-US trade agreement (TTIP), currently under negation. But the letter is misleading: health and public services more generally have not been explicitly excluded from TTIP.
