Doctors in the UK are worried about the commercialisation of the NHS and the impact of the independent sector on healthcare, a new survey has revealed.

The British Medical Association (BMA) study found that 94% of the 124 respondents were concerned about the future of their local health services when left to market forces and 86% did not approve of the provision of NHS services by commercial companies.

The survey was conducted in light of the UK government’s controversial private finance initiative to fund hospitals and healthcare facilities.

Three quarters of doctors support the BMA’s eight principles for a future NHS that is publicly funded and publicly provided.
