Is this privatisation of the NHS?

The aim of the CCG and the Council is to deliver the best health and wellbeing outcomes for our population and we will work with any organisation that can help us to do that whether they are classed as public sector, private sector or voluntary sector.
 
We have commissioned organisations to deliver health and care services in the community for a number of years including community interest companies, charities and private providers such as domiciliary care agencies. This process has been about finding the best possible organisation to coordinate community services for local people.
 
Virgin Care has a proven track record of improving outcomes, operating over 250 NHS and social care services across the country. They successfully work alongside a range of providers in other areas including local and national charities, care providers, local businesses, hospital trusts and GPs. Their national scale means that innovations from elsewhere in the country can easily be replicated in B&NES.
