Royal London Hospital

Issue No. 1768

SOME 200 people joined a protest against threatened PFI privatisation at east London's giant Royal London Hospital on Wednesday of last week. UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis addressed the rally against the proposed PFI scheme to redevelop the hospital.

The plan is the biggest NHS PFI scheme in the country. Local UNISON branch secretary Phil Billows spoke of workers' fears of being transferred to private companies under PFI. Protesters went to the trust's annual general meeting to make their feelings known.
