Scheme for NHS hospital trusts abroad "a real opportunity"

A new scheme to help NHS hospitals set up profit-making branches abroad to fund better services in the UK presents a "real opportunity", the NHS Confederation's deputy chief executive David Stout told BBC Radio 4's 'Today' programme.

Launching this autumn, the joint scheme from the Department of Health and UK Trade and Investment will aim to link NHS hospitals with foreign governments which want access to British health services.
