Private Finance, Public Services The Commission on Public Private Partnerships, conducted over the past two years by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR), was set up ?to introduce greater clarity to partnership arrangements? between the public and private sectors and ?to produce a set of authoritative guidelines which will inform the use of partnership in the future?. This response produced by the Health Policy and Health Services Research Unit argues that while the Commission was critical of certain past projects it failed to ask more fundamental questions about the role of markets and for-profit operators in the delivery of health care, education, long term care and other public services. "Public Services and the Private Sector: A response to the IPPR" by Allyson Pollock, Jean Shaoul, David Rowland and Stewart Player is published by the Catalyst.
