Abstract

Public-Private Partnership is expanding rapidly as an alternative for the provision of goods and services by governments. This paper analyses PPP phenomenon and focuses on relevance as regards healthcare services. Methodology is centred on literature review and a detailed description of the Private Finance Initiative in the United Kingdom as a case study. Our findings corroborate a clear predominance of healthcare services provided in recent years through PPP schemes in the UK and in most other European countries as well. We also confirm that in the UK only 2% of capital value of PFI healthcare projects is scored on the departmental balance sheet. Consequently, while better value for money is demonstrated, affordability and budgetary risk must be carefully surveyed. Cautionary risk factors and benefit potentials should be balanced against each other when governments initiate a PPP strategy.
