A lot of money from the “Waiting list initiative” went to private companies. And of course private hospitals would not have NHS patients to ventilate, they usually send their problem patients and when things go wrong to the NHS. Private medicine is geared to pick the simpler well defined procedures.
Mat Hancock before his disgraceful exit, was introducing a law to give the secretary of state more power on NHS decisions and no doubt more and more privatisation will ensue. The Tories treat the NHS as a cash cow, but mind you, some of this started during the time of Blair and Brown.
In fact after Iraq, one of the worst things that Blair did was the facilitation of more NHS privatisation. The PPI for NHS infrastructure fundings was an unmitigated disaster and the “payment by result” method of NHS accounting produced a huge swell of NHS administrators with the purpose of monetising the NHS in preparation for privatisation.
