The Guardian, 16 August 2016

In an article by The Guardian‘s Health Editor Denis Campbell about privatisation of the NHS, he quoted George Freeman MP in a speech he made to Reform as then Minister for Life Sciences.

“Last month the then health minister George Freeman called for an end to the “apartheid” between the NHS and private sector. “In my party, we have to end the apartheid that suggests the private sector does all the innovation and entrepreneurship and the public sector just treats people … The NHS is the great engine of innovation that can drive that partnership,” he said in a speech to the Reform thinktank. There also needed to be “a debate about how we fund health and care in the 21st century”, he added.”
