The Government is committed to an NHS that is there for everyone who needs it, funded from general taxation and free at the point of use. TTIP will not affect how the NHS decides who is best to provide its services.
The EU's chief negotiator on TTIP has stated that EU countries will continue to be free to decide how they run their public health systems.
Negotiators from the United States and the European Union have confirmed that it will continue to be for EU member states to make decisions about whether and to what extent they involve the private sector in the provision of public services.
There is no reason to fear either for the NHS as it stands today or for changes to the NHS in future as a result of TTIP.
