Alan Milburn is wrong – private hospitals have done little for the NHS
We don\’t actually care whether private hospitals are good for the NHS. For the NHS is just a structure, one that exists to perform a task. It\’s the task, how well it is performed, that is the question we should be talking about.
What is the impact of private hospitals on health care?
This is still open to the answer being a lot, a little, positive, negative, but unless we ask the right questions we\’ll never get the right answers.
The NHS doesn\’t matter: what does is how good is the health care we\’re getting for what price?
