Mark Britnell is very perceptive, but avoids the reality of rationing. This means his contribution is not appreciated by the profession. He does ecognise that inaction is paving the way for private health care.

NHSreality was asked to review Mark Britnell’s book: What would the world’s best health system look like? Mark Britnell is very perceptive, but avoids the reality of rationing. This means his contribution is not appreciated by the profession. By default, and denial, the way to private health care becomes clearer daily.

In “Paving the way for private healthcare” 12th Jan 2017 in the Independent:

…..”One is reminded of Mark Britnell’s comments a few years ago at a private equity conference that the NHS would be shown “no mercy” and that it would become a “state insurance provider, not a state deliverer” of care.”

( Mark Britnell “In search of the perfect health system”, (published by Macmillan Education and Palgrave ISBN 978-1-137-49661-4)  2015 by Mark Britnell)

About Roger Burns - retired GP

I am a retired GP and medical educator. I have supported patient participation throughout my career, and my practice, St Thomas; Surgery, has had a longstanding and active Patient Participation Group (PPG). I support the idea of Community Health Councils, although I feel they should be funded at arms length from government. I have taught GP trainees for 30 years, and been a Programme Director for GP training in Pembrokeshire 20 years. I served on the Pembrokeshire LHG and LHB for a total of 10 years. I completed an MBA in 1996, and I along with most others, never had an exit interview from any job in the NHS! I completed an MBA in 1996, and was a runner up for the Adam Smith prize for economy and efficiency in government in that year. This was owing to a suggestion (St Thomas' Mutual) that practices had incentives for saving by being allowed to buy rationed out services in the following year.
