The NHS in South Devon has signed a deal with a private company to build new health centres in Dartmouth and Teignmouth and handed over all NHS buildings in the area to it. Privatisation steaming ahead!
From BBC Devon website on 22 August (from a Facebook post, so I don’t have the link):
The NHS in South Devon has signed a deal with a private company to build new health centres in Dartmouth and Teignmouth and a new emergency department at Torbay Hospital. The firm, Health Innovation Partners, will also be in charge of all NHS buildings in the area.
Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust says it’s an “exciting partnership” which will give the NHS access to funds and expertise so it can modernise its old buildings and also build new ones. Critics though are concerned it is privatisation “by the back door”.
