NHS privatisation has more than doubled under the Tories

The Tories have claimed that under them “the NHS is not for sale“. However, the figures clearly show that this is not true.

Under the Tories, privatisation has increased from £4.1 billion in 2009/10 to £9.2 billion in 2018/19. This is an increase of over 120%.
