    The slow destruction of the NHS

    Post by Technician on Thu 28 Feb 2013, 12:21 pm

    Hi All,

    Hope readers do not mind me posting this, but I had this e mail this morning outlining the current 'backdoor' practices of the government in slowly privatising and destroying our NHS.

    Apart from working for it, I have had a lot to thank the NHS for and do not wish to see it destroyed in this way. I you agree you may wish to sign their petition,

    link here: https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/nhs-section75

    NOTE:

    A new fight over NHS privatisation has just begun. 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. Jeremy Hunt's new privatisation plot is contained within "NHS competition regulations". Usually these kinds of
    rules get quickly rubber-stamped by Parliament. This time,
    we need to get MPs and Lords to stand up to Hunt and block
    his plans. 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.

    This is a potential nightmare. Lets try and stop this madness in its tracks.

    Yes Techie, we all know that the Tories want the NHS to be delivered into the hands of their private-sector friends so that they can make millions out of the taxpayers of Britain.

    I hate to use the name but since Thatcher failed to privatise the NHS by the front door today's Tories have been trying very hard to do it by the back door.

    I for one will sign that petition willingly.

    Yes Technician we should fight tooth and nail to ensure that this government do not hand over the NHS to the private sector.

    With 221,197 signatures to the petition now recorded we should see a full debate in The Commons any day now.

    I added my signature to it today !
