When you make any business profit-driven it's ongoing goal will be to cut costs and increase income.
In the case of healthcare that could literally mean life or death for those who can't afford it, or are deemed "not a good investment".
Private ownership may be able to bring in more money and resources, but it'll also bring in more conditions of treatment.
But in many ways that already exists due to the 'postcode lottery' (i realise thats a Tabloid phrase, but it is quite an acurate one). Differnt hospitals are better than others. Bradfords is very good however Rotheram, just a few miles down the rd is utterly shit, as is that one reported by the newspapers yesterday. Govenment meddling with targets and stuff to please the fickle electorate is the main cause for the rise in hospital infections. Reduced waiting times have resulted in more folk being dead, not a very good exchange really.
That, and a minority of doctors who just couldn't give a fuck are making the NHS very sick indeed
Private sector involvement is a must, by taking minor cases and treating those who can afford it, the private sector will reduce the strain on the NHS and allow it to deal with the most serious cases and those who cannot afford private care. It will not create a two tier system because the revitalised NHS, with less demand, will be almost as good as private in the end.
