Help us take CHPI to the next level


CHPI urgently needs your support

Our recent work on PFI and private hospitals has had a major impact and we have started to change how politicians think about markets in healthcare.

Although the donations we have received to date have allowed us to employ one researcher, most of this work has been done for free by a team of volunteers.

This is not sustainable. Unless we receive more funds through individual donations we won’t be able to continue.

In the future we want to look in detail at: the mass sell-off of NHS land; conflicts of interest between the NHS and the private sector; and the money which leaks out of the Social Care market in the form of profits and debt.

To maintain our independence, we won’t take money from government or big business for this work. But if 1000 people could contribute £100 a year, this would give us the funds we need.

Compared to other health think tanks – who do receive money from big business and government – we operate on a fraction of their budgets.

Supporting CHPI helps to reset the balance.

But the larger benefits are arguably for the private hospitals themselves and their lenders and landlords, who in effect have received a bailout from the government at a time of crisis.
