Why is Newcastle council not opposing the £1.2 billion hand over of front line NHS services to private companies?      


It’s time Newcastle’s Labour council ended it’s silence on this sell-off.
 
It’s time they and Stoke-on-Trent city council made a commitment to oppose this private plunder of our NHS services.
 
This is why Stoke & Newcastle TUSC is calling upon Newcastle Borough Council to;
  • Publicly oppose the £1.2 billion sell-off of NHS cancer and end of life care across Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle and Staffordshire.
  • Fight instead for a fully funded and publicly owned and controlled NHS
  • ‘Call-in’ this sell-off to be debated by their Health Overview and Scrutiny committee
  • Organise a referendum of the population of Newcastle Borough and campaign for a ‘No to the NHS sell-off’ vote
