Does the private finance initiative promote innovation in health care? The case of the british national health service

Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 30 (6):627 – 642 (2005)
Abstract
The Private Finance Initiative (PFI) is a specific example of health care privatization within the British National Health Service. In this essay, I critically assess the ways in which various Private Finance Initiatives have increased health care efficiency and effectiveness, as well as encouraged medical innovation. Indeed, as the analysis will demonstrate, significant empirical evidence supports the conclusion that Private Finance Initiatives are a driving force of innovation within the British Health Care System.
