Save our NHS Services in Hull!
The Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in Hull have this year sold off your local physiotherapy services, or what they call musculoskeletal services. Physiotherapy is a vital part of the NHS, it helps the elderly person who has just had a hip replacement walk again, the teenager who breaks a bone playing sport, or the patient who is recuperating at home after major surgery – without NHS physiotherapy these people would not get treated.
Now the Hull CCG have sold all this away to a private company called Healthshare.
The NHS was set up to care about people, not private companies caring for their shareholders. That’s why local people have come together to create a local campaign to stop the NHS in Hull selling off our health services.
Our NHS is now facing an even bigger threat from a trade deal that is currently being negotiated behind closed doors. TTIP (Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership) will effectively open up all public services for sale to transatlantic companies, meaning that our NHS could be sold forever.
