Your Choice has now decided that instead of being the fantastic profit making service that was promised by Tory Barnet, it needs to restructure.......(or cut services and sack staff to you and me). This has lead to uproar amongst services users (families who use the service with family members with leaning disabilities or physical and sensory impairments to you and me) and fear has reigned amongst the service users. None of the service users have been allowed to see what restructuring they are making due to it being a staffing restructure not a service restructure, though how one can be defined from another is ridiculous. If you cut staff, service will be effected.
The Your Choice board held a meeting in council offices on 30/05/13 where some of the families of the service users ( what a fucking name to call people with disabilities by the way, they are people for god sake) wanted to ask them questions about the restructure and the effect on the services. If you watch the video below you will actually see some of their service users there.
And this is the point I am making about outsourcing healthcare. The chairman of Your Choice will say what every other private vulture in the NHS will say when asked to face the people they are using to coin it from the local authorities "This is a board meeting of a private company. It is not a local authority meeting and the right to be here does not extend to you. I advise the board to retire." Cue uproar amongst the families. One even asked if they could all meet again to discuss what the restructure would do, to which the obnoxious little shit replied "we will certainly take that on board and may come back to you". The entire board then walked out leaving the families and the service users very very angry.
Welcome to what will happen to the NHS when the Tories sell it to their financial backers.
They are a private company, they do not need to share anything with you......go and swing!
