Keep Rydon Out Of Our Hospital
The hospital Board MUST immediately terminate their contract with Ryhurst (Rydon)
Do NOT selloff any NHS property
Do NOT reduce any health services currently provided by Whittington Health
Do NOT cause any Whittington staff member to lose their job due to the Estate Strategy
Why is this important?
The Whittington Hospital Board have decided to appoint Ryhurst, a subsidary of Rydon, to co-ordinate and manage the proposed Estates Strategy. This is the company that refurbished Grenfell Tower, prior to the devastating and tragic fire, and more locally the Chalcots Estate.
There has been no community consultation regarding this irresponsible, insensitive and crass decision to appoint Ryhurst. We do not want to see parts of the Whittington Estate, covering community and in-patient health care across Haringey and Islington, sold off. Ryhurst will be entitled to share the proceeds with the hospital - to pocket OUR health funds, paid out of OUR health taxes. Staff could lose jobs and health service provision could be cut.
