How Fair? Competition between Independent and NHS Providers to Supply Non-Emergency Hospital Care to NHS Patients in England

Author

  • Sussex, J.

Abstract

Written while Labour Government policies still were in force, this Briefing clearly and thoroughly examines non-discretionary cost differences between public and independent providers that may have a serious impact on the effectiveness of competition. Four key differences are identified - corporation tax, value added tax, pension costs and cost of capital. Critical barriers to implementing the competition policy are reviewed.
