Here’s why MPs are so keen on private health companies

Wes Streeting: the Shadow Health Secretary took ยฃ22,500 in donations from private health firms last year, according to EveryDoctor’s interactive map. Why would he end NHS privatisation and stop that money from coming to him?

Did you ever hear of an organisation calledย EveryDoctor?

It’s a group of doctors campaigning to revive the National Health Service in the face of huge political effort – from both main parties – to kill it off in favour of private companies.

And it has compiled an interactive map showing not only the extent of Tory-driven privatisation, but MPs’ interests in private health firms.

Here’s the tweet announcing it:

To provide a taste of what you’ll find if you use the map, the organisation has been tweeting interesting entries on it:

The really important element to grasp is that it isn’t only Tories who are making money from private health. Look at this:

This is the Shadow Health Secretary. Perhaps now Labour’s about-turn on health policy, so it now supports the increased use of private companies, makes more sense.

Here’s another Labour donation – but this one went straight to the top: Keir Starmer took ยฃ12,500 from a private health firm.

Do you really think he’s going to bite the hand that feeds him by returning the NHS to the principles on which it was founded and kicking private profit-makers out?

It seems unlikely to me.

Yvette Cooper’s take has been massive:

It seems clear that this is the reason neither Labour nor the Tories want to rid your health service of the private, profit-making parasites:

They are taking donations from those firms.

    As far as I am concerned, almost every MP in Parliament is committing treason against Britain and the British people. They have no interest in serving Britain or the British people. They are only interested in serving themselves, their bank accounts and those that bribe them. They all belong in prison…..Not Parliament!
