Mythbuster: Healthcare mutuals

Mythbuster: Healthcare mutuals video

There is a widespread belief that says healthcare mutuals are not ready for investment, but new research suggests this is based on several false assumptions. Pioneers Post puts the research to the professionals to bust some myths about healthcare mutuals. 

Two commonly held assumptions about social enterprise healthcare mutuals are:  

  1. They rely on one single contract to survive
  2. They don’t have the business acumen or rigour to compete with the private sector  

But, new research suggests some of these myths need to be put to bed. Matt Black takes the research to Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre for some mutual myth busting with some of the UK's leading social investors.
