David Cameron is wrecking our NHS
I want to warn you of the government’s latest assault on our NHS which in future could see hospitals shut in as little as 40 days.
Clause 118 (now 119) of the Care bill will allow for the privatisation or fast-track closure of hospitals, in as little as 40 days, at the whim of Westminster bureaucrats, without any proper consultation.
Dubbed the hospital closure clause, clause 119 of the Care bill is being rushed through parliament by the Conservatives in the wake of Jeremy Hunt’s defeat by the people of Lewisham in his bid to close their successful and solvent local hospital to bail out a nearby trust.
MPs are set to vote on clause 119 next week, (10-11 March). That doesn’t give us long to stop this undemocratic power grab becoming law.
Remember they work for you – email James Wharton and tell him how concerned you are. Please click here and enter your details and click submit.
With one in five hospitals drowning in debt, dozens of hospitals could be at risk of closure or ripe for takeover by profit-driven healthcare companies on financial grounds alone, regardless of clinical need.
Don’t let any of our hospitals be next. Email your MP today.
