Campaigners warn new health and care bill could cause a repeat of PPE contracts scandal and lead to an unregulated healthcare market

The Labour party, doctors’ leaders and anti-privatisation campaigners warned that the new health and care bill would allow NHS bodies to simply award contracts for clinical care to private healthcare providers without considering other bids.
