Theresa May appoints Tory Peer who advocates NHS privatisation to crucial ‘independent’ NHS Chairman role

Full story on Evolve Politics, 9 September 2018

The man who Theresa May has just appointed Chairman of the NHS, Tory Peer Lord Prior of Brampton – who will take over from Sir Malcolm Grant in the autumn – attended a secret conference in 2013 which was held specifically to discuss privatisation of the NHS.

The seminar, which took place in Windsor and included discussions on topics such as “private health insurance growth opportunities”, was organised by the private healthcare firm, McKinsey, who tried to block details of the conference being made public.

McKinsey currently makes millions of pounds from fulfilling outsourced contracts to supply services to the NHS, as well as advising private healthcare clients.
