A private healthcare consultancy from Boston is working with NHS Scotland to increase efficiency. Don’t Tories like increases in efficiency? Is the hypocrisy really on show here, once more, in the Boris Express? The Institute for Healthcare Improvement is, importantly, not delivering any part of the NHS in Scotland’s frontline services but, hey, the Express doesn’t tell you that. The Express only tells us that the contract is worth millions but, of course don’t tell you just how much nor what percentage of the total expenditure of £12.2 BILLION it might be.

More important, however, the Express won’t be telling its readers any of these FACTS, just the most recent, revealing NHS Scotland as the best in the UK and one of the best in the world:
