STOP NHS PRIVATISATION

Enough is Enough: Liverpool NHS Bosses 50% pay rise. How can this be justified when #NHS Health Workers have lost 14% in real terms pay? #NHS front line staff need to strike back, the #Conservatives are destroying our NHS

Pay rises of up to 50% for senior NHS managers in Liverpool have been described as “scandalous” by an MP.

Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) chairman Nadim Fazlani got a £50,000 rise in 2014-15, Rosie Cooper’s Freedom of Information request found.

Replying to the West Lancashire Labour MP during Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday, Theresa May promised an investigation into the pay hike.

Liverpool CCG said its salaries were set within NHS England guidelines.

Solidarity with our #Derbyuk Teaching Assistants: You can help by spreading the word and donating to the strike fund.

Aside Posted on Updated on

In a major (and very brave) escalation, Derby teaching assistants are now on ALL OUT STRIKE over a 25% pay cut imposed last June. Last week Ranjit Banwait, leader of the Labour council, walked out of a full council meeting rather than face angry parents and TAs. He then walked out early from an ACAS meeting with UNISON the following day – to do prearranged media interviews condemning the negotiations!

Derby TAs are now calling on teachers and heads to help them close schools to bring about a swift resolution to this dispute – you can help by spreading the word and donating to the strike fund.

Make cheques payable to Derby City UNISON Industrial Action Fund and send to: UNISON Derby City Branch, Royal Oak House, Market Place, Derby DE1 3AR.

Wiltshire’s entire NHS Children’s Services privatised to Virgin in £64 million deal

Virgin Care, which will take over Wiltshire’s children’s health services

NHS staff working in child health services in one West county have been told they have a new boss – Richard Branson – after health chiefs unilaterally privatised their entire department in a £64 million deal.

All community child health services in Wiltshire will be privatised, with council and NHS bosses defending their decision saying it was the best way to ensure a ‘consistent’ service across the county.

But leaders representing the staff being transferred said they had real fears the move would mean a worse service for more money, which they said was what happened when taxes were paid for ‘profits and shareholders’.

Until now, all the services from Cricklade to Salisbury had been run by five different NHS organisations. The services now part of the deal include children’s specialist community nursing, health visiting and speech and language therapy
