Will the NHS survive this government's reckless privatisations? Now it's shifting the blame for failures in its centralised Track and Trace system onto the public health framework which its predecessors devised and which it then deliberately starved of funds.
There's the looming disaster of the Trade Deals with the United States: join Global Justice Now's on-line book launch on Tuesday 1st September to learn what's coming and how to stop it.
Then there's the huge leak of funds into the private hospital sector. The government is currently giving £400m each month to private hospitals to 'support the NHS' i.e. to keep beds available in the case of a surge in Coronavirus admissions. But these beds are currently empty - private hospitals are in no rush to start operating. It's good news for companies like Spire Healthcare (who own the Montefiore in Hove) who were making a loss before the pandemic struck. Their share price is rising!
Now a contract worth £10bn is being mooted to buy operations for the NHS in private hospitals: long waiting lists will be a huge bonus for them in the long run. Write to your MP and CCGs and demand full knowledge and scrutiny of these deals, or we may never see the NHS recover.
