“They are taking away my NHS badge”, says one staff member
10,000 NHS staff to begin with are being transferred out of the NHS into the private sector.
Sara Gorton, Unison’s head of health, said: “Staff affected don’t want to leave the NHS. They joined to be part of the health team that helps care for the ill, the injured and the dying.
“These new companies are being set up because of the government’s funding squeeze, but could just open up the NHS to another wave of privatisation by the back door.
