For the last month the Government have been tryingto sneak through regulations (the fine details) to the Health and Social Care Act that will mean the privatisation of the NHS.Despite giving repeated assurances they would not do this the drive for profit is greater than their commitment to promises made to us, the electorate. They were caught red-handed and after an amazing groundswell of opposition from all over the country the Government were pushed into re-writing the regulations. A small victory for us, but they are now back with the same wrecking ideas spruced up, cowardly repackaged and due to come in to force on April 1stWe are calling on all who support the NHS to join the Lobby of Parliament (26 March) to urge the Lords and Commons to reject the regulations and to defend the NHS as a public service.
We want to make sure that CCGs are not forced to use competition, but can decide for themselves whether they use NHS services or whether they choose to use private providers like Virgin or other international companies.
With your help, we managed to get them to change the law. However, their new version is just as bad as the old one. We have therefore sent this letter to the Lords to get the new law changed.
If you’re in work take a day off, use up banked overtime, use up a day’s annual leave, get to the lobby don’t let the Government wreck the NHS!
