Lansley takes job with firm that promotes NHS privatisation

Solomon Hughes has spotted that former Health Secretary Andrew Lansley – who pushed through the Health and Social Care Act and its pro-market reforms – has quietly taken a job with Bain & Company, a firm which promotes privatisation in the health service.

Documents released by the Advisory Committee on Business Appointments state that Lansley’s new job involves:

leading a discussion on innovation in healthcare with Bain’s clients and consultants.

There goes the revolving door again. Another ex-minister profits as our health service gets sold off piece by piece.
