Episode notes

New findings from a team at Oxford University suggest that privatisation bad for your health.  


Researchers looked at 13 long-term studies from well-off countries including the UK to examine what happened ‘before’ and ‘after’ public health provision was outsourced. 


Their conclusion: Increases in privatisation generally corresponded with worse quality of care.


Adrian Goldberg talks to one of the researchers Ben Goodair, and Cat Hobbs, Director of the campaign group We Own It.
