The Health and Social Care Act 2012 has eased the way for further privatisation of the NHS.  The Coalition government has paved the way for NHS hospital trusts to spend 49% of their efforts and resources for private patients and is now proposing that high profile NHS hospitals should set up profit making branches abroad.

Andy Burnham, the Labour Shadow Health Minister, today condemned this in his interview with the BBC. You can hear the interview by clicking the link below:

I am passionate about the NHS and feel it should be protected as a national treasure and should not be tampered with for party political reasons.
