We fear the BMA has the wrong end of the stick here

“The BMA, the British Medical Association, tells us that the NHS, that National Health Service, needs another £9.5 billion stat. That is, the trade union for Britain’s doctors says that the employer of near all Britain’s doctors should have lots more money. … It’s the unnecessary competition and expensive fragmentation that betrays the error here. For as Adam Smith pointed out those 241 years ago, long enough for people to grasp the point, we become richer through the division and specialisation of labour. Yes, that damn pin factory. This does indeed apply in medicine — the literature is chock full of research showing that hospitals which do a lot of one type of operation have very much better results than those which occasionally dabble.” (02/14/17)
