The healthcare sector is not a free-for-all.
For a start, the market is a relatively small one.
The UK spends a third of GDP on healthcare, according to the OECD, and this number will only grow as the health service becomes more expensive.
For the time being, this will have a limited impact on the sector, as many services have not yet hit the scale needed to sustain the massive growth in demand.
But it will also make it harder for firms to compete against one another.
The NHS is already struggling to cope with the pressures of a rapidly ageing population and rising demand.
For that reason, it is being heavily lobbied by the health industry, which wants to cut costs while still providing high-quality services.
That’s why many companies are lobbying against measures like the one proposed by the Liberal Democrats.
This would allow private insurers to sell policies to the public sector for £25,000 a year.
The Liberal Democrats say this is not fair and that private insurers should be allowed to provide high-value services, like nursing homes, while retaining the right to charge consumers for them.
But the Liberal Democrat plan would be a far cry from the NHS’s approach.
In the long term, the NHS will have to find more efficient ways to provide care.
It needs to make sure its staff are up to scratch, and it needs to set targets and pay people well enough to ensure they are not under pressure.
It also needs to create incentives for patients to come forward and get the care they need.
And it needs more support for the provision of home care.
If the Liberal Democratic proposal were to pass, it would also have to address a major challenge facing the NHS: the ageing population.
As it ages, its staff need to be replaced by people with more experience, and the government needs to find ways to keep people in jobs they enjoy for longer.
The Tories, meanwhile, want to continue providing free care to anyone who is eligible.
This could mean allowing private insurers a licence to sell private policies to NHS patients for £50,000 to £100,000 per year, but this is unlikely to change much as the government has so far resisted calls for this.
Meanwhile, the Liberal Dems propose to introduce a national cap on the amount of private insurance that can be offered to NHS staff.
The Conservatives would introduce similar legislation, and Labour has proposed a cap of £250,000.
What are the options for the NHS?
The Conservatives argue that the NHS needs to look beyond its current problems.
They argue that it can’t continue to provide services that don’t meet the needs of the new generations of people, and that it should look at other ways to attract more of them to the service.
This is likely to be controversial.
The public sector, which is already being stretched to the limit, is already dealing with the effects of ageing.
And the NHS is increasingly reliant on the private sector.
The private sector is increasingly used to providing services like nursing and home care, and will need to continue to do so in the future.
If NHS hospitals were allowed to offer private insurance to NHS residents, there would be pressure on the government to act to support this, especially if private insurers were to offer policies to staff who were not in a position to offer them themselves.
Private insurers would be able to charge for their services, and if that didn’t work, they could use the extra cash to pay for their staff’s personal healthcare, which would then be covered by the government.
But this would mean that private insurance would have to make a lot of the decisions about the health of its staff.
It would also mean that it would be harder to make it easier for private insurers, as it would require more oversight and accountability.
The Liberals argue that by allowing private insurance companies to offer policy to NHS workers, the government could ensure that it was doing what it was supposed to do, even if it means that staff are getting poorer care at a time when they need it the most.
This idea could have a number of benefits.
It could improve the NHS by allowing more staff to get the help they need, and by making the government’s health service more affordable.
This, they say, would allow it to maintain its reputation as a national provider of affordable care.
But if private insurance were to be allowed, it could lead to a situation where the government was able to spend a lot more money on the NHS, which could also mean fewer people would be covered.
The risk of privatisation is huge There are a number potential risks to the privatisation of the NHS.
It may mean that some people with the lowest incomes will pay higher prices than others.
Private insurance could encourage firms to focus on the service they offer, which might make it difficult for those with the highest incomes to get high-end services like private nursing homes.
And this could lead private insurers and insurers of health and social care providers to compete in the private market, which may lead to less
