One of the most controversial debates arisen during the Covid-19 emergency was about the role of private healthcare. It has been said that the contribution of private healthcare in helping to cope the emergency was minimal, that it focused mostly on more profitable services. As it is often the case the debate was extended to the much broader issue of a mixed public-private healthcare model, within the national healthcare service. Under what conditions might a mixed public-private healthcare model serve the common good? This topic will be discussed with managerial representatives of both the public and private sectors.
