Stop Privatisation of the NHS at All Costs
ALLYSON Pollock's insightful article on out-of-hours care in Scotland is something that none of us can afford to ignore (September 12). Successive, impotent, governments have allowed the NHS to wilt on the vine. Out-ofhours care is one symptom of this systemic disease.
The private sector has a major foothold south of the border. We must stop this from happening in Scotland at all costs.
The Tayside proposal is, quite frankly, unbelievable. I can only hope common sense and people power prevails.
