Keeping the NHS public
Are you all aware Jeremy Hunt is trying to use new powers, hidden within last year's controversial NHS laws, to force local GPs to privatise more health services. Hunt is breaking promises made to MPs when NHS laws were voted through last year. Hunt's new regulations (Statutory Instrument 257 under Section 75 of the Health & Social Care Act 2012) are like a catalogue of our worst fears. GPs would have to open up every part of local health services to private companies, whether or not it’s what they or local people want. It would speed up the break up of the NHS, giving profit-hungry companies new rights to muscle in. If you want to keep the NHS public let your MP know.Or you can sign a petition at https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/nhs-section75 there are only a couple of day’s left before it is delivered.
