Yeah, you heard me right:

Doctors are urging the government to row back on its "dogmatic commercialisation" of the NHS to help protect services during the recession. [...]
One of the major motions on the first day of the Liverpool meeting on Monday is [b]a call for a day of industrial action[/b].
But BMA chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum warned his members not to vote for strikes despite anger over the use of the private sector. [...]
He said moves to create polyclinics and PFI schemes, which use private money to build hospitals, were draining the health service of resources and fragmenting care.
He continued: "We have never said the private sector has no place in the NHS, but in an ideal world we think the vast majority of NHS services should be publicly provided." [...]
Dr Meldrum added: "Although the private sector has for many years played a role in providing care, a majority of the public believe that the government's dogmatic and misguided plan to commercialise the NHS has gone too far and is threatening the very future of the health service."
Tommy Douglas would be downright confused.
