The Monk Exchange
Professor Colin Leys
What's the talk about?
The government maintains that the Health and Social Care Bill doesn’t mean the privatisation of the NHS.
Is this true?
What are the main changes implied by the Bill, and what do they imply for patients and taxpayers?
What are the reasons for the changes, and do they add up to a persuasive case?
Colin Leys is an emeritus professor of political studies at Queen’s University, Canada, and an honorary professor at Goldsmiths University of London. His most recent books include Market-Driven Politics: Neoliberal Democracy and the Public Interest (2001) and (with Stewart Player) The Plot Against the NHS (2011).
