Foot in the door -

Whilst the plight of the NHS Trust where a private sector company has been invited to take over has been described as exeptional; is this not the foot in the door to full NHS privatisation? And if, the private company has a "plan" to improve services and standards, pay of a huge debt and still make a profit for their shareholders, why couldn't the existing NHS management adopt such a plan, which should work out cheaper, as there would be no profit requirement? :unsure:

NHS carries too many 'passengers' whereas a private concern won't.

It was interesting to note that a section of the NHS (not sure which) did bid to run the hospital, they were turned down in favour of the private company. Everyone will be watching to see if they can deliver on their promise of high standards, nurse and doctor input on decision making and balancing the books. If it all succeeds then maybe it will produce a template for the future of healthcare in this country.

Errm, I'm not suggesting otherwise; in fact the opposite: if the private sector can come forward with a plan to improve services/standards, pay back a huge debt over 10 years and still make a profit for their shareholders; then such a plan should be implimented by the NHS, which, minus the profit requirement, should work out cheaper than the private sector. :roll:
