The BMA has launched an NHS anti-marketisation campaign called Look After Our NHS. 9C653AEF-A9AA-87EC-1FA642BE22E02918

BMA chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum said: ‘A market economy is based on winners and losers. We’re not prepared to allow parts of the NHS to fail.

‘We want to get rid of the market in healthcare and allow our hospitals and GP surgeries to work together, not be forced to compete against each other for business. Worse still it leads to unnecessary duplication, encourages gaming and there is no good evidence that it drives up quality.’

The BMA is calling on doctors to sign up to a set of key principles that argue for an NHS which is publicly funded, publicly provided and publicly accountable.
