CAMPAIGNERS have called on the Government to withdraw from an EU trade deal which they say will lead to the ‘irreversible privatisation’ of the NHS.
Hundreds of residents in Worcester signed a letter to Robin Walker MP calling on him to press Prime Minister David Cameron to take the NHS out of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
A group of campaigners gathered at the Guildhall on Thursday (October 1) to handover more than 700 letters to get the ‘NHS out of TTIP’.
Campaigners say TTIP threatens to make the on-going privatisation of the NHS irreversible by giving the profits of corporation’s precedence over national lawmakers.
Worcester resident Kym Humphries, said: “The people of Worcester do not believe it is right for the NHS to be part of an EU trade deal that could lead to the irreversible sell off of the NHS.
“Our MP must listen and help get the NHS out of TTIP. It is time to fight to give ordinary people their rights against big business, it is our Health Service.”
