John McDonnell reacts to the news Allied Healthcare is in financial difficulty

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, reacting to the news Allied Healthcare is in financial difficulty, said:

“Following on from the collapse of Carillon, Allied Healthcare is just the latest example of the high risk of privatising and outsourcing our vital public services.

“The government needs to step up to the plate fast to put in place measures to guarantee the provision of these essential services and to protect the vulnerable people who rely upon them.

“Lessons have also to be learned about the need to fund social care services properly, including pay for care staff.”
