Abstract

The government should buy up the private hospital facilities that it needs at market value, and require all NHS consultants to commit their time solely to the pandemic response, rather than spending time doing non-urgent private work. Only in this way can the state ensure that healthcare is made available on the basis of need rather than ability to pay, writes David Rowland.
