After the sell-off plans announced by the Government for an agency that offers thousands of nurses and other health professionals to hospices all across the nation, it has been accused of promoting privatization of the NHS.
The Department of Health said that it is open to explore a great number of alternatives for investments to be made in the private sector in the NHS Professionals that are independently owned by states, which comprise no less than 50,000 staff members on its books and puts staff for two million shifts each year at 77 various health trust organizations.
As soon as the decision of the sell-off came out, Unions could not stop, but be furious at the decision.
UNISON Head of Health, Karen Jennings said that the real cause behind setting up NHS Professionals was because private agencies were making things worse for hospitals, since the hospitals had been paying high amount, so as to employ staff or alternate them for shifts.
In an email, the Department said that the plan was well in line with the policy, formed by the Government to increase the worth of assets as well as the commercial options.
Along with that, another statement said that there will be meetings held by the Department with the private sector to discuss on options and opportunities.
