There is no 'old closed shop' supplying the NHS with services. The NHS IS the service provider. Sure the NHS has a budget to spend but its used to buy drugs and equipment.

I took my father to a hospital appointment at Stepping Hill last week. He needed further eye tests which Stepping Hill used to carryout, but now the tests have been outsourced to a Company called Optegra. The Companies are profit driven entities who aim to provide good dividends for their investors. You don't save the tax payer money by using NHS money to buy in services the NHS can provide for itself. The NHS is not there to make a profit, Optegra and other companies like it, are. Buying in services is double speak for privatisation via the back door.
