Say NO to blood money

It’s hard to believe, but this government wants to sell off parts of the NHS blood service.

Many of us have family members who have benefited from the NHS blood donation and transplant service. And many of us are also blood donors.

Now the government is planning to privatise key parts of the service responsible for transporting, processing and testing blood, allowing private companies to make a profit from the blood and organs donated freely by the public.

We can’t let it happen.
Will people feel the same about a service that is providing a profit for a private company? Will donors want to give blood if someone else makes money from their gesture?

Email your MP and let them know your concerns.

If you receive a response from your MP please let us know what they said by emailing: bloodcampaign@unison.co.uk
