The government closes the wards at a hospital and reduces funding so that the A&E four hour wait target is failed. The government then calls it a ‘failing hospital’ and sells it off to a private company. The government then gives the private company plenty of taxpayer’s money so that it can re-open the wards, reduce the waiting time and become a ‘succeeding hospital’.
The now succeeding hospital now turns a profit which goes into the pockets of the private comapany’s shareholders – who just happen to be members of the current government.
After all if it’s good enough for Gove to do to schools, it’s good enough for Hunt and Lansley to do to hospitals.
