Privatised planet

The private sector in healthcare has been a horror story in the US, so why do successive British governments think it will work in the UK?

The NHS, is now over 70 years old, but persistent underfunding and demoralisation of staff means it’s now more dependent on the private providers. 

Over the last four years around two-thirds of NHS contracts, by value, have gone to the private sector.

During those four years their total yearly value has almost doubled, so is it any wonder the profiteers are moving in?

The NHS has been dubbed “the pinnacle of human achievement,” so how wary should people be about moving towards a private US system?

Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by the founder of We Own It, Cat Hobbs, and author Dr Tim Coles to discuss why we live on an increasingly privatised planet.
