NHS: It’s been confirmed – Virgin Care, a private company owned by billionaire Richard Branson – has been awarded almost £2 billion worth of NHS contracts. Virgin are now one of the biggest providers of healthcare in the UK, but they’re still trying to squeeze even more money out of our NHS, by dragging it through the courts and suing the NHS for millions which could be spent on improving healthcare.
Virgin Care have gotten away with this. Until now. Richard Branson has a high profile – he cares about what the public think. He’ll be hoping no one has noticed his company dragging our NHS through the courts. If hundreds of thousands of us sign an open letter to Branson today – telling him to stop pursuing our NHS for even more money, he’ll know where the public stand. He and his lawyers could think twice before they take our NHS to court again.
If you believe that taxpayers’ money should be spent improving our hospitals, not fighting a billionaire in court, will you sign the open letter to Richard Branson now?
