New Statesman, 27 March 2015

Senior Researcher Cathy Corrie wrote an article for the NewStatesman where she argued that it was the lack of reform, rather than marketisation, that is the greatest threat to the NHS.

“NHS hospitals must become much more efficient. The Health Select Committee has warned that savings this Parliament have been through national pay freezes and squeezes on prices, not through changes to the way services operate. The average hospital is still 10% less productive than the best performing. Hospital deficits are expected to reach more than £800 million in the next few weeks.”
