Financial control in the NHS

Here' s a little gem from the Times' report that the Dear Leader is going to pull the plug on lots of PFI projects because they look as though they will bankrupt the trusts.
“Ministers are considering how to make it clearer that PFI schemes have to make financial sense,” a source in the department said.
That the politicians in charge of the NHS feel they have to explain that financial viability is a factor to be considered in setting up a multi-million pound project is the most incredible indictment of the whole Stalinist system that is the NHS.

You have got to be a complete half-wit if you think that socialised medecine is the best solution for this country.
