The problem lies in the political nature of the local authorities, which makes their dual role difficult to perform. They are responsible for containing healthcare costs, as well as for the quality of the care provided. The lack of competition in healthcare provision means that costs are too high and that patients have little or no choice in the care they receive, the article concludes.
