Public debate: This House Would Privatise the NHS

The involvement of the private sector in the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) has been a sharply debated issue for many years. Critics have claimed their involvement drives down the standard of care given to patients and runs opposite to its core founding values. Proponents of privatisation call for more market competition to cut down costs while improving care, and to crack down on structural inefficiencies.

The MDU is situated in an area where many people such as students are dependant on mental health services e.g. counselling and under current circumstances, they have never been more essential. So we were proud to fundraise for the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Trust Fund!

We’d like to thank everyone who watched the debate, as well as the speakers themselves. More information can be found on the event page.
