Lessons from Paterson: the need for private healthcare providers to have ‘skin in the game’

My article published in the SpecialistInfo magazine  on 18 May 2020.

The Paterson scandal highlighted many areas of concern which need to be addressed:  accountability, transparency and patient safety in the private healthcare sector,  the ‘flawed’ private health model,  the lack of liaison between the NHS and the private sector and the risks posed by inadequate supervision of outsourced NHS care,  the wider issues of concern raised by AvMA and the protection afforded to whistleblowers in private hospitals.
