NHS Bill amendment will not prevent private company piracy

Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) will still have the power to appoint private health companies, despite the promised amendment to the Health & Care Bill currently going through Parliament. A further amendment is needed to prevent ICBs from acting completely outside of parliamentary control, and providing private health companies with the opportunity to influence how the NHS spends public money.

Press release:  6 October
