Blood Service win

Submitted by Matthew on 9 November, 2011 - 10:11

Health workers have won a small victory against privatisation of the NHS after it was announced the Blood and Transplant Service will not be privatised.

The Industrial Workers of the World and Unison unions had led the campaign to stop the service being put into the hands of companies such as DHL and Capita, who had shown an interest in running the service.

A commercial review of the service reported on 18 October that it should remain nationalised.

Activists must now build momentum from this to stop the wholesale selling-off of the rest of the NHS to companies interested not in saving lives, but making profit.
