Opening the NHS to Private Outsourcing

Published måndag 4 december 2006 kl 11.54
Göran Hägglund

Swedish Social Welfare Minister Göran Hägglund wants to change the law so that more of the national healthcare system here can be operated by private interests.



The current law, passed by the previous Social Democratic government specifically to prevent privatization, bans profit-making by publicly funded hospitals and clinics. Writing in Monday’s edition of the newspaper “Dagens Nyheter”, Hägglund says profit can be a driving force that can contribute to development.

He wants to make it easier for county authorities, which operate the national health system in Sweden, to outsource their responsibilities to private interests.

Hägglund says the government will introduce legislation to change the system early next year.
