When it comes to medical emergency, what matters most to you? Patient safety? Or cutting costs?
Yorkshire ambulance trust has got its priorities wrong. Over the next five years £46 million will be slashed. Highly trained ambulance staff are being downgraded and workers’ terms and conditions attacked.
Unite has spoken out about the risk to patient safety as a result of the mass downgrading of qualified staff and the threat of private providers, like Arriva picking up NHS contracts.
Instead of taking our fears seriously the trust has de-recognised Unite - a move almost unprecedented in the NHS - and silenced the voices of around 500 ambulance workers. Sign up now to support ambulance workers and protect patience.
