Defending independence and freedom of health services research

The work of Prof Allyson Pollock and her team is well known internationally. Her scientifically sound and politically sharp work especially analysing and unmasking the privatisation tactics used by the british government (Private Finance Initiative & Public Private Partnership) produced an unbelievable assault against her by the Commons Health Select Committee.

A debate is ongoing these days with written reactions against the Commons Health Select Committee’s assault on Prof Allyson Pollock’s credibility and on the integrity of her research and findings.
