The cat's been let out of the bag

GP commissioning is just one part of the White Paper. Far more important is Lansley's plans to privatise NHS hospitals. The private sector are not happy about this because they are inefficient and bloated and cannot match the cost-effectiveness of NHS treatment. However they do see an opportunity.

Kingsley Manning, a partner in Tribal’s healthcare business says:
"The opportunities for the sector may come when NHS trusts who have been told they must become foundation trusts fail. Then there will be a chance for the private sector to step in."
