Unite campaigns for end of privatisation of the NHS

Unite/CPHVA has launched a campaign calling for the end of the privatisation of the NHS.


Health B4 Profit appears to chime with the BMA's anti-marketisation drive launched earlier this month.

Unite has published a report titled ‘The Patchwork Privatisation of Our Health Service’ which highlights how private companies with government encouragement are taking over swathes of the health service with adverse knock-on effects for patients and staff employment conditions.

Karen Reay, Unite’s national officer for health, said: ‘Reading this document should make anyone concerned about the future of the NHS very angry indeed.

‘The myth that private companies can provide better services than the NHS is a giant experiment based on a flawed ideology that is failing on a daily basis, while costing the taxpayer dearly.’
