New CHPI report: profits made by PFI firms and cost to NHS

This report from the Centre for Health and the Public Interest (CHPI) finds that over the past 6 years the companies holding PFI contracts to build and run NHS hospitals and other facilities have made pre-tax profits of £831m – money which has therefore been unavailable for patient care. If the NHS had not been paying pre-tax profits on PFI schemes, the deficits in NHS hospitals would have been reduced by a quarter over this 6 year period.
The report recommends a number of ways in which the Government and NHS can work together to curtail excess profits in the future.
