EDM | Proposals For The Future Of Nhs Blood And Transplant Service

Posted on: 15th June 2011

Andrew George MP has signed EDM number 1832 in 2010-11, proposed by Sandra Osborne on 18/05/2011.

The motion reads,

That this House is opposed to the Government’s proposals that parts of the National Health Service Blood and Transplant Service be subject to competitive tendering and outsourcing to the private sector; notes that this would fundamentally change the relationship between the service and its donors and would also undermine and jeopardise the unique core value of blood and organ donation in the UK that is based on individuals and charities giving voluntarily; and recognises the long-standing national consensus that people give blood and organs to save lives, not to contribute to third parties’ profits.
