NHS plc: The Privatisation of Our Health Care


Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

"NHS plcis an account of how Britain's National Health Service, which established health care as a right, has been progressively dismantled and privatised by successive governments over the past quarter-century. The story is of course not unique to Britain. Universal Health Care systems are being dismantled and privatised across the world. Making health care once again a commodity to be bought, rather than a right, has become the standard prescription of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organisation, and even the World Health Organisation  – and, increasingly, the European Commission. This book tries to show what is at stake." – from the preface.

Allyson Pollock is Professor of Health Policy and Health Services Research at University College London. A public health doctor, she researches and publishes widely on health policy issues and is a frequent contributor to radio and television discussions.
