Motion text

That this House notes that the Government regulation implementing section 75 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 contradicts previous ministerial assurances that NHS commissioners should decide when and how competition should be used to serve patient interests; believes that, although the previous administration rolled out the red carpet to private companies to make profits from NHS services, patients come before profits in the UK's NHS; and therefore calls on the Government to withdraw S.I., 2013, No. 257, go back to the drawing board and draw up a policy which supports an integrated NHS which encourages collaboration in the interest of patient care rather than a fragmented service driven by profit.
