STOP THE NHS SELL-OFF OF £1.2 BILLION CANCER CARE IN STAFFORDSHIRE

STOP THE NHS SELL-OFF OF £1.2 BILLION CANCER CARE IN STAFFORDSHIRE

We are calling on you to withdraw from the £1.2b privatisation of cancer treatment and end of life care in Staffordshire.

Why is this important?

Cancer patients in Staffordshire should know that the people caring for them are in the business of saving lives, not making money. There’s no justification for privatisation on this scale, ordinary people in Staffordshire haven’t been properly asked what they think, and if this deal goes through, we’ll be stuck with it for 10 years - and it could open the door for sweeping privatisation of our NHS across the country.

As someone who lives in Staffordshire, I don’t want our healthcare in the hands of profit-hungry private companies. This contract is an untried, untested 10-year-long experiment and we can’t let this happen. If our CCGs don’t pull out of this deal, our money will be profiting shareholders rather than improving care. Let’s stop this in Staffordshire, and put the brakes on privatisation across the country.
