The NHS continues as a battleground; a war in which we know the public is overwhelmingly on one side and government ideologues and corporations like Virgin on the other. This is a battle between a publicly funded, publicly provided health service and a healthcare system viewed as a market for the private sector. The public must win this war, which is why Greens strongly back the campaign for NHS reinstatement to roll back the “internal market”, end contracting, and return the NHS to purely public provision. If we fail, corporations like Virgin will be left running our health service.”
