Professor Allyson Pollock has conducted a wealth of research into the damaging impact of the Private Finance Initiative on the NHS.
‘How PFI is crippling the NHS’ - 2012 Guardian article by Professor Allyson Pollock on how NHS funds are being used to prop up banks and equity investors.
‘Hospitals being charged extortionate sums by PFI providers’ - 2011 Telegraph article saying NHS is being charged ‘extortionate’ sums by private companies for basic DIY.
Introduction to PFI by John Lister - somewhat old, but still an excellent clearly written introduction. http://www.keepournhspublic.com/pdf/theprivatefinanceinitiative.pdf
‘PropCo and the Health Act - the great NHS property scam’ - important and little noted provisions, covered in an article by Steve Walker.
