The Tories have always been against the NHS. Even going back to its inception in 1946 when Churchill railed against it and vehemently vilified Nye Bevan for his part in setting up the institution.
Then on to Thatcher who split it into separate NHS trusts and forced them to arrange a tender system to enable outside companies to profit from works.
Then we had the May government following on from Cameron, cutting funding to make it not fit for purpose, when they will sell off all the profitable parts to their business friends to make more millions out of what should be a state-run national service again, as it was meant to be.
This process has already started, so many bits are now in private company hands. The likes of Carillion and Capita run lots of different parts of the system.

Smaller companies are taking over other parts, eg, Chime now doing hearing aids, very often by the same people who did it for the NHS but now get paid less. Have you tried to find an NHS dentist? It’s almost impossible.
