GMB, the union for NHS workers, has responded to Donald Trump's insistence the NHS is 'absolutely' on the table in any post-Brexit trade deal with the UK.

Rehana Azam, GMB National Secretary, said:

"Today a British PM insulted our hard working NHS workers on a scale never seen before. 

"Whilst NHS workers are tirelessly delivering healthcare, politicians are tripping over themselves to put our NHS at the mercy of the American market. 
 



Scrap Section 75 - sign our petition

"At a time when GMB is campaigning to revoke section 75 and stop privatisation, President Trump is just waiting to get his hands on our NHS.

"There’s a very real danger Conservatives will just hand it over to him in a trade deal 

"You only have to look to America to see how big greedy corporations are  - and their track record in making money out of sick people.

Today a British PM insulted our hard working NHS workers on a scale never seen before. Whilst NHS workers are tirelessly delivering healthcare, politicians are tripping over themselves to put our NHS at the mercy of the American market. 

Rehana Azam, GMB National Secretary

"This what a future NHS looks like. If this is May’s parting shot then she’ll have misjudged the strength of feeling the public have for our NHS."
