NHS privatisation kills

An Oxford University study shows that NHS privatisation kills.

It is also heartening that people email me raising their concerns about the privatisation of the NHS “by the back door”.  This Oxford study reflects the established fact that the fully privatised American health system costs twice as much and has half the effective outcomes compared to the NHS.  That means people have died unnecessarily under a privatised system.

We know that recent governments have been running the NHS down on purpose, as a prelude to privatising a precious jewel of the UK.  So, one of my urgent priorities is to end this privatisation.

I have campaigned for years for more funding for the NHS to ensure we have a service that works. You can be sure that I fully support reinstating the NHS as a fully public service.

I will continue to defend our beloved NHS and am pleased that so many of my constituents support this.
