Bradford hospital workers balloted over strike action to fight ‘backdoor privatisation’
Staff at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust will vote on whether to take industrial action after the announcement of the privatisation of some of its services. The UNISON ballot opens today (Monday) and comes after the Trust said hospital staff, including porters and domestic assistants, will be outsourced to a separate company to cut costs by exploiting a tax loophole.

On some of his early trips, Westerberg even brought over drugs from Canada in order to treat patients. But as low-cost generics made in India and China became widely available through Uganda’s government and international aid agencies in the early 2000s, it seemed at first like the supply issue had been ...
