There will be a Vox Political article on Hinchingbrooke and the wider NHS later, but in the meantime let’s hear from Tom Pride: Privatised NHS hospital Hinchingbrooke in Cambridgeshire has failed.
Hinchingbrooke’s private owners – Circle Holdiings – are running away from a 10-year contract after they ran the hospital into the ground so badly that inspectors said patients are being treated in an “undignified” and even “abusive manner”.
Circle Holdings was set up by a former Goldman Sach’s banker and is 95% owned by hedge fund investors and other bankers.
Bankers are unable to run their own banks competently, never mind hospitals.
