Private management switch approved

23rd September 2010

Thousands of staff from Cornwall Primary Care Trust are to be managed by a private organisation.

NHS managers have approved plans for the trust to set up a community interest company outside the NHS to manage its 2,400 staff in a move that affects 14 community hospitals, district and school nurses and speech and language therapists. The health union Unison has spoken out against the plans and said that the change was part of a move to "demolish the NHS as we know it".
