SALE OF NHS PROFESSIONALS

EDM (Early Day Motion) 152: tabled on 11 July 2017

Tabled in the 2017-19 session.

This motion has been signed by 113 Members. It has not yet had any amendments submitted.

Motion text

That this House recognises the value and effectiveness of the NHS; notes the success of NHS Professionals in supplying short-term and flexible staff to NHS trusts with staffing gaps at a very low overhead cost; understands that private agencies perform the same function at a higher cost by charging expensive rates of commission; notes that the use of NHS Professionals as opposed to private staffing agencies saves the NHS approximately £70 million per year; further understands that all profits made by NHS Professionals are currently reinvested into the NHS; regrets the Government’s decision to sell 74.9 per cent of its stake in NHS Professionals to a private buyer; maintains that NHS Professionals in the hands of a private buyer will cost the NHS more and will not improve the service provided; further notes that the start of the contract is set to be 1 September 2017; and calls on the Government to halt the sale immediately and retain full ownership of NHS Professionals.
