Diana attends Hull North petitioning session for 'Save NHS' campaign

Diana Johnson MP joined local campaigners in Newland Avenue to collect names for a petition to oppose NHS privatisation.

Diana Johnson MP said: “We are campaigning to save our NHS for future generations from the creeping privatisation introduced by this Coalition.”

The Hull North Labour MP is also sponsoring a Commons Private Member’s Bill to repeal the damaging competition rules inflicted on the NHS by the Coalition Government.

The Bill from Eltham Labour MP Clive Efford would rewrite rules in the Coalition’s Health and Social Care Act 2012 that force market tendering of services. These rules are seeing millions of pounds wasted on competition lawyers instead of patients.

The Bill will be debated in the Commons on 21 November and Labour will use the intervening period to call on MPs from all sides to support Labour’s Bill, highlighting how the current rules are wasting money and fragmenting care.
