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.

Donate now

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.

In particular, what about the public interest in the NHS as a publicly provided, publicly accountable, universal service, free at the point of delivery?

There is an urgent need to review the UK’s system of communicable disease control administration and its public health laws

| August 24, 2020

In the midst of a lethal pandemic, the government controversially axed the main public health body (Public Health England) and announced the creation of yet another bureaucracy, designed by management consultants with no expertise in public health. History shows that without a clear overarching strategy and laws, these ad hoc reforms are likely to further hamper the UK’s ability to protect the population.
