Labour MP Frank Field proposes a better way of providing health care than the NHS

This article, which the Adam Smith Institute blog describes as 'brave' certainly makes interesting reading. Whilst it may be brave, it seems to me it is simple common sense and it surprises me that no Labour MP has realised this or had the courage to say it before. Undoubtedly we do need some kind of publicly-funded healthcare, but the monolith that the NHS has become is not the way a modern and prosperous country should be doing it.
