The think tank Reform has just released a great report which argues the NHS is in a weaker position than it was two years ago.

Despite record levels of tax payers’ money being thrown at the service the NHS has systematically failed to tackle rising costs or to invest in modern services.

Rightly pointing the finger at vested interests opposed to reform, the report concludes that much more competition and privatisation are vital.

Patients will only get more responsive high quality services when their healthcare is run along business lines.
