Press Release 24th April 2014
The NHS is in real trouble now, due to a toxic mix of cuts and privatisation. The cuts are serious. Locally, we already face the huge threat to one of the A&Es, and the likely loss of one of the District General Hospitals. It’s probable that the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital is in the firing line, rather than the Princess Royal at Telford – but whichever way round, it’s a disaster for local people if this happens.
Tragically, Shropshire GPs have decided to make a bad situation worse. They’re moving now to privatise NHS services – and to award the contracts to a new private company that they’ve set up themselves!
