US corporations taking over NHS is nightmare scenario – Ashworth responds to Trump

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to Donald Trump saying the NHS will be “on the table” in a future trade deal with the US, said:

“US corporations taking over our NHS is a nightmare scenario.

“The Tories appear happy to give Trump what he wants, and some want to offer up our NHS to get the No Deal Brexit they are campaigning for.

“If our NHS is taken over by US corporations, it will undermine it as a free, universal public service. The NHS is only safe in Labour hands.”
