BBC News - Private firm becomes first to run NHS hospital
A private company has won a contract to run the Hinchingbrooke hospital in Cambridgeshire. I wonder if this the next step in privatisation of the National Health Service. With portering, catering and housekeeping services being contracted out I worry about how far this will cascade.
It will be interesting how financial decisions will impact on clinical services, I know this already happens but is this going to improve care or will this private company start by cutting services and staffing further.
