No politcal party is proposing privatisation of Health or Education.
The Tories are promoting choice for patients and parents, and propose to allow providers from all sectors to provide health services free at the point of use at NHS prices.
The controversial part of the Tory plans is to allow some NHS money to follow the patient into the private sector for a more expensive operation. Currently the government are allready sending patients into the private sector where NHS capacity os not available so this is not as radical a step as it might appear to some.
The idea of the policy is that market forces can operate within the NHS to allocate resources to meet patients needs.
Are you a Tory party candidate? That sounds distinctively like a party political speech to me
At present the public sector monopoly and excessive government control is wasting money and allocating resources inefficiently and irt makes no sense at all to maintain the current monopoly.
The Tories are right, and Labour can only respons with a diluted verison of an essential policy.
