What is Lansley Up To?

Health Policy Insight have an interesting scoop, you should read it over on their website. Basically, onm the sly, the Department of Health has bought 48.75% of Dr Foster Intelligence from the NHS Intelligence Centre (an arm's length organisation) for £8m. They didn't tell anyone that they were doing this. This goes against Lansley's free market privatisation ethos, after all, Dr Foster Intelligence is just the sort of organisation to hand over to the private sector since there are plenty of private sector companies in the same business.

Smells fishy.
