Anti-marketisation campaign launched by BMA2nd June 2009
The BMA has launched a campaign, Look after our NHS, which asks doctors to support principles aimed at stopping market-driven reforms.
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."
