What will happen when the NHS is privatised in 2022? Will we have to (directly) pay (more) for treatment etc? Will healthcare become more expensive?

The same could have been said of transport and the post etc.

I think it's very unlikely the front door of the NHS will be privatised by 2022 i.e. it will still be free "at the point of use".

There will, however, probably be increasing involvement of private providers and marketisation behind the scenes in the form of contracts, cherry picking of easy/profitable patients and procedures and so on. Unprofitable services will be more at risk of being shut down, which is likely to affect less affluent or more complex patients. It's worth mentioning that this is not something new, althought I believe it may accelerate and widen.

But to the non-medical and unaware public the shiny hospital building will still be there and it will still look and feel "free".

There's nothing to suggest the NHS will be significantly privatised in 2022, or at any other time in any sort of foreseeable future.

It would be political suicide if the Tories privatised the NHS.

People are extremely protective of it and the Tories know it.

I'll have to pay you £1,00 in the bet we are going to have where I bet the NHS won't be in private ownership in 2022?

When?

Like when three years prior to being privatised where there no plans for transport or post to be privatised?

NHS is already very much privatised. You and I will notice nothibg but rich investors in private health providing companies will see their bank accounts swell as tax payers money is given in profits. Meanwhile, frontline services will be cut back to provide even greater profits, sponsored by weak contracts that play into the favour of rich investors.

What amazes me is that there are people out there that say brexiteers are gullible for believing all the lies about the EU etc that then peddle this kind of bull****.
The NHS is not for sale and never will be, as Quady has already said it would be political suicide, and I mean the end for any party that did it.

"Privatisation" has just become a meaningless buzzword in the context of the NHS.
