Petratos, Pythagoras (2005) Does the Private Finance Initiative Promote Innovation in Healthcare? The Case of the British National Health Service. The Journal of Medicine and Philosophy, 30 (6). pp. 627-642.
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 in the British Health Care System.
