Andrew Bridgen asks about the future of the private and voluntary sectors in the NHS

14th November 2017

Andrew Bridgen questions the Government about future use of the private and voluntary sectors in the provision of NHS services.

What role does the Minister see for the private and voluntary sectors in the provision of NHS services and delivery in the future?

There has been a continuing involvement of private provision of health services since the very origins of the NHS, when GP partnerships came in, as private businesses, to provide their services. Of course, competitive tendering to NHS contracts was introduced by the last Labour Government, and the rate of private provision under that Government grew faster than it has under this Government. According to the last figures, 7.7% of services were provided by the independent sector.
