Health is not a commodity, 18 September 2013

Health is not a commodity and the NHS and its different parts of the service should not be treated as such by a mass sell off.  This will cost money and will not necessarily result in improved services.  The NHS must be kept in the public domain, not given to private providers who are answerable to their shareholders, which is what the health and social care policy advocates.

Health must come before profit - this is why I shall be at the rally in Manchester on 29 September.
