Tory-led council Lancashire County Council nhs privatisation by the back door’

Lancashire County Council has awarded a £104m healthcare contract to Virgin Care. And leader of the Labour group on the council Azhar Ali has called the decision “privatisation by the back door”.
Richard Branson will benefit. But will anyone else?

The Conservative-led council has decided to entrust the county’s 0-19 Healthy Child Programme to Richard Branson’s private company. This programme aims to prevent health inequalities among children and young people. Ali said:

but wait Virgin Care’s latest privatisation comes just after the company sued the NHS after losing an £82m contract. Ashworth said:
