38 Degrees | NHS: protect out of hours services

Private companies like Serco and Care UK are putting GP out of hours service in danger. They’ve been cashing in on contracts to provide GP services at the weekend and overnight. And it looks like they’ve not been doing a proper job – and lives are at risk as a result. It’s time to rein in these greedy companies. There’s a powerful committee of MPs that has the power to do a proper investigation into their behaviour – and stop them getting further contracts if they’ve been doing a bad job. But there are lots of demands on the committee’s time. They’ll only investigate if they know there’s great public concern. If we work together now, we can prove that there is strong public concern. Together we can demand a full investigation into GP out of hours services provided by private health companies. Help stop the private health industry endangering people’s lives with dodgy out of hours coverage
