This is vital reading for anyone who has ever thought that introducing private companies into NHS service provision might ever be a good thing: It isn’t.
The intrusion of ‘for-profit’ companies into our health service means, by definition, that money intended to buy care for the sick will become company profit instead; now we see that there is also a huge risk of these private providers making fraudulent claims the patients have more severe conditions, in order to attract higher payment.
Despicable – and entirely unsurprising.
