Private firms have NO place in health care
You only have to look over the Atlantic to the USA to see what mess you get when
private firms, be they full of doctors (like Kaiser) or pencil pushing
insurance bureacrats get into places where health care and NOT business administration
should be the order of the day.
We KNOW private involvement does NOT work. Look at the failed trusts experiment. We have
more dying people, longer lists and more pen pushers.
The GMB union is to pay for posters showing a nurse caring for a baby in an incubator and a pig being fed from a bucket. The slogan asks: "Who would you trust to run the NHS?"
Keep private interests who will put profit before health OUT of health care or pay the
price we have seen in failed NHS trusts and that ALL Americans sorely regret - free market
means NO health care.
