The Metropolitan Hospital Project – despite its gradiose name – is in fact a large privately financed development of one of Birmingham and the Black Country’s main trusts – Sandwell and West Birmingham (known locally as ‘City and Sandwell’), one of the UK’s first under PFI’s successor, PF2. Birmingham KONP, TUC and several unions commissioned a report on the project from Dr John Lister, and this is being launched on:
Wednesday 15 June, 6.30-8.30pm, at the Birmingham and Midland Institute, Margaret Street, Birmingham, B3 3BS. All welcome.
John Lister will present the report. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and get involved in the ongoing campaign. The event will be free, but any donations and other contributions to costs will be welcome.
