Sussex is one area of the country lucky enough to have a feisty local Defend our NHS campaign. Lately the group has been taking a look at the role of voluntary agencies in the struggle to stop the break-up of the Health Service. The result is an impressive paper. Whilst voluntary groups can both oppose privatisation and continue to provide useful and appropriate support to the Health Service, the paper argues the need to “…confront the real and present threat to the NHS posed by those third sector organisations who are seeking to play the private health sector at their own game.” Useful local examples from the area illustrate the kind of scenarios now being played out around the country.
