The Keep Our NHS Public petition opposes ‘any further expansion of the role of the private sector in the NHS’. It will be delivered by Professor Wendy Savage, union and community group representatives.
Professor Savage, co-chairman of Keep Our NHS Public, said: ‘Rather than making GPs into commissioners and accountants, the government should be getting doctors, patients and managers to work together.
‘The last Health Select Committee said NHS commissioning had produced '20 years of costly failure'. Instead of dragging out that failure still further, the split between NHS purchasers and providers must be scrapped and the health service reintegrated.’
