    Elegantly put, Kristian. Indeed, it is worth taking your point one stage further and imagining a situation where the current private and public roles in medical supply in the UK were reversed, i.e. that not only had the providers of drugs and medical devices been nationalised but that hospitals, etc. had not been and were still privately run. The defenders of public sector monopoly of medical supplies would claim, were privatisation proposed, that it is only the fact that they are provided by a nationalised industry that prevents hospitals/medics etc. being either overcharged or financially incentivised by suppliers to prescribe treatments for the profit motive of suppliers rather than the interests of patients.
