BPACC - MPs let down public over NHS vote

Location: UK » South West » BH

Bournemouth and Poole’s three Conservative MPs were criticised by local anti-cuts campaigners for voting in favour of the controversial Health and Social Care Bill.
As the MPs were voting, around 50 members of the Bournemouth and Poole Anti-Cuts Coalition (BPACC) gathered for a candlelit vigil outside Poole hospital on Wednesday 7th September. They were joined by local councillors, health professionals, patients and students.
Organiser Darren Brown said: “The support from the public has been tremendous. Everyone uses the NHS at some point in their lives - and they realise that if the private sector are allowed to take it over, we’ll have a system where only the rich can afford to get treatment. The three MPs that voted last night in support of privatisation, longer waiting times, poorer treatment and a break-up of the NHS have let down local people. We’ll keep campaigning to stop the plans.”
