No privatisation of Manchester’s fertility service!

PUBLIC MEETING: No privatisation of Manchester’s fertility service!
Monday, 20 July 2020 from 19:00-20:30

The fertility service provided by the Department of Reproductive Medicine at St Mary’s hospital, Manchester, faces privatisation. According to reports, Manchester Foundation Trust announced earlier this year that the service would go over to a private company in 2021. This would be a disaster for the service and future patients.

Now the Trust has begun an “options appraisal” over the future of the service. We insist that the #1 option must be keeping it public and keeping it where it is. We demand a public consultation so the people of Manchester have their say.

Join our online public meeting to hear about the situation and how we can campaign to win. There will be discussion after the speakers, who are:

Denise Andrews, Unison union rep, DRM
Liz Holland, Unite the Union branch secretary, MFT
James Bull, Unison union regional officer
Pia Feig, a feminist perspective
Chaired by Caroline Bedale, Greater Manchester Keep Our NHS Public.

This will be a Facebook Live event broadcast through the event page.
