Thanks to those of you who joined our Campaign Meeting on Tuesday. Our guest speaker, Dr Jackie Applebee was excellent and provided a chilling account of how GP services have been opened up to private companies.
Whilst Ealing GP surgeries are not directly affected by the Operose/Centene takeover at this time, the nature of some GP contracts mean they can be taken over by private companies. We clearly need to find out exactly which GPs are on these contracts and keep a very watchful eye.
Nationwide protests took place on Thursday to call for Centene to be kicked out and next on the list is Serco.
Please find below details of our upcoming Serco protest on Tuesday 27th April
