One model of a semi-privatised medical service is the one that Tony Blair stuffed us with - the NHS Treatment Centres.
Run by private companies, given substantial contracts, with guaranteed minimums, to do daycase and short stay surgery.
Anything that they did not want to do, the district hospitals had to plead a case to the relevant PCT for the money.
As for what happens after the Independence Referendum … … take a guess … …
One man has built his political career on the Independence campaign - the details have never been thought through, and the public have never been consulted. It’s not just the NHS. Who will pay all the benefits currently controlled from Westminster? It wants just one country to vote against an Independent Scotland joining the EU - and they don’t get in. What currency will they use then? The Scottish Pound will be just another small currency traded on the financial exchanges for a profit. And there are a lot more details that the public have been steered away from.
Home rule for England, I say.
