KeepNHSPublicPetitionBlog There will be a Street Stall in Hedon on Wednesday, details above. We will be collecting signatures for our petition which calls on the Government to “Keep Our NHS Hull and E. Yorkshire Public” as the spectre of mass privatisation of services looms large. Virgin Healthcare are already involved in delivery of public services. There is a real danger that East Riding Community Hospital in Beverley, which has been plunged into crisis by bungling management (see posts below) will be broken up and sold for profit.
In addition there was a serious incident in Hedon in which it took 40 minutes for an ambulance to arrive at a road traffic accident. The community are concerned that cuts will only make situations like these more common.
