Oh well done Spudda!

The Nayler report, which Theresa May says she backs, requires the NHS to sell its assets as a condition of further funding. It’s privatisation by the backdoor. Here’s an explainer by Chris Holden

The Naylor report actually says that that part of the NHS estate which is surplus to the provision of medical services should be sold off in order to fund a modernisation of the medical estate.

  1. The Naylor report actually says that that part of the NHS estate which is surplus to the provision of medical services should be sold off in order to fund a modernisation of the medical estate.

    A Land Value Tax would make that a more urgent requirement. Though we aren’t going to get one.

  2. If they sell off property that is surplus to the provision of medial services where will the Equality and Diversity managers work?

  3. Yes, it’s Labours new meme. Going great guns on Facebook in increasingly fantastical mutations.

  4. You’re talking at cross-purposes. You have given us a brief exposition of the Naylor report. He is referring to the Nayler Report, obviously a completely different document.

  5. The MoD has been selling surplus property for years and best I can tell the armed forces still get paid by the government and report to Brenda and said government.

  6. Only for a year afterwards. Like countless governments before it New Labour used the previous admijistration’s legislation. Pretty much like PFI.

  7. NHS selling property is like pissing in the wind. They have been selling off hospitals for years, what happened to that money?

  8. Reading the executive summary of the Naylor review, it sounds like they’re asking hospitals in London to sell half their land to developers, and rebuild themselves at twice the height on the other half.

    Obviously that’s a one-off; not a trick that can be repeated indefinitely. The public are generally sceptical of one-offs, especially those that can be characterised as “selling off the family silver”, and especially in land-obsessed Britain.

  9. The offices in which my wife restarted work once she felt that we could rely on the school to care for our younger son during school hours had been left derelict by the NHS for more than a decade (OK – I don’t know how long) before someone stateed to refurbish them.
