NHS under Scottish referendum spotlight

Scotland’s independence referendum has thrown the spotlight on the National Health Service, as campaigners clash over the claim that it faces privatisation by stealth. The referendum debate has so far revolved around the currency, Scotland’s precious oil resources, the armed forces and European Union membership. Another emotive topic is the fate in Scotland of the cherished NHS, launched in 1948 by then-health minister Aneurin Bevan. Pro-independence “Yes” campaigners, spearheaded by First Minister Alex Salmond, argue that the NHS in Scotland needs protection from creeping privatisation, but “No” campaigners contend that it is in safe hands.
