Great Britain: state-run hospitals to be run by franchisees

The British health care service, the National Health Service (NHS), is looking to privatise state-run hospitals via franchising. According to a report on the German Internet portal,, plans to achieve this goal were submitted recently to the British Ministry of Health.

British doctors are, the report says, against such franchising plans. Franchisees are to be found for hospitals that do not achieve the targets set them by the Ministry of Health. The British Medical Association, the BMA, has called for these privatisation measures to be stopped and for improved opportunities for NHS managers. (kbp)
