Andy Burnham, Labour’s shadow health secretary, called on the Prime Minister [David Cameron] to “get his priorities right” and concentrate on the NHS [National Health Service] at home, rather than chasing profit abroad.
However, it has now emerged that Gordon Brown’s [Labour] government set up a profit-making arm called NHS Global to “maximise its international potential… and bring benefits back to the UK taxpayer”.
....Anne Milton, the public health minister, accused Labour of “campaigning against its own policy”
“Andy Burnham has jumped on every passing bandwagon - now he is attacking the ability of hospital doctors to raise money for NHS patients,” she said. “It is clear that Labour will stop at nothing to score a political point, even if it means damaging patients.”
