Private sector use by NHS falls

6th February 2009

Health secretary Alan Johnson has claimed that the use of the private sector in the NHS has fallen under Labour.

In a recent lecture at BMA House in London, Mr Johnson defended Labour’s record and criticised the Conservative Party’s health policy. He said the element of the private sector has gone down from 1.4% to 1.2% and he also rejected criticism of the NHS’s IT programme, Connecting for Health, claiming that while it was delayed it was not over budget.
