Please sign and share this petition to demand Brighton and Hove Council’s Health and Wellbeing Board stop the sell-off and mass budget cuts to our children’s health services
Why is this important?
Community health services for children and young people include health visiting, school nursing and the Family Nurse Partnership (FNP) – a programme for teenage parents. These services are essential for our children’s wellbeing but they are now under the most severe threat.
Private companies like Virgin care are being awarded huge contracts across many different health services but, because they want to make a profit, they reduce their costs by cutting staff and lowering standards and quality of care.
• don’t want a company like Virgincare making money from the health of Brightons’ children
• don’t want to see our children suffer as a result of a £1m cut to their services
• Want to see the service properly funded and run by the NHS
then please sign and share this petition as widely as possible.
And please make your feelings about the potential privatisation known to your MP, local councillors and the local press.
FOR OUR CHILDREN’S SAKE: SAY NO TO THE PRIVATISATION OF THE NHS
