Well done everyone!
On 25 July KONP members from Islington, Lambeth and Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign accompanied members of We Own It in delivering their petition to keep NHS Professionals public to the Department of Health, it had 16,400 signatures.
We Own It (with support from Keep Our NHS Public and Unison, amongst others) led a campaign to stop its privatisation and prompted referral to the National Audit Office by Justin Madders, the Labour Party Shadow Health Minister.
Thanks to them and the campaigning efforts of many groups and individuals across the country the Department of Health announced on 7 September that they have dropped the plans to privatise the employment agency, commenting that NHS Professionals will stay “wholly in public ownership“
Proof that campaigning works!
Join us or donate and help us continue the work to stop NHS privatisation.
