CELEBRATE THE NHS’S 70TH BIRTHDAY – PROTEST THE PRIVATE FINANCE COLLAPSE at the Midland Metropolitan Hospital site, 5.30-6.30 Thursday 5 July

The reason for the demo is simple: Almost exactly 2 years ago, we said “don’t build this hospital under private finance”. We published Dr John Lister’s review of the project which expressed concerns about PFI (renamed PF2) and its impact on the NHS and health and social care provision in the area. Since then,  the construction firm Carillion crashed spectacularly in Jan 2018 leaving the hospital half built. This month, the European Investment Bank and other investors pulled the plug on the finance, leaving the most sensible option – the government to pay for the project directly.  The local MP continues to ask questions in Parliament, but six months on there are no real answers from the Treasury, health ministers or the Government.

Our message is clear: FULLY FUND THE MIDLAND MET HOSPITAL AND RUN IT PROPERLY UNDER GOVERNMENT AND NHS CONTROL!
