Swansea - no more cuts for cash

SWANSEA NHS Trust has announced the closure of 86 beds and plans to shed 742 jobs, almost half of them nursing posts. This carries on the Trust's 'Cuts for Cash' strategy where staff and patients are expected to pay the price for getting the Trust bank balance back into the black.

Alec Thraves, Swansea Socialist Party

The Trust aims to save 15.5 million over the next year but, despite their denials, it will be at the expense of patient care. Health workers are angry at these most recent attacks, proposed without any consultation with the unions.

After massive opposition to its health reorganisation plans, the Welsh Assembly government was forced to call a moratorium and conduct a review but proposals such as these show that the fight to defend our NHS must be stepped up in Swansea and throughout Wales.

Socialist Party members will be joining with UNISON members, other trade unionists and NHS campaigners to ensure that these latest round of cuts are defeated.
