Keep our Hospitals Public!

Keep our Hospitals Public!

Dear Premier Berejiklian and Health Minister Hazzard

Please do not outsource public health services at any of our NSW public hospitals to private operators, as this would result in fewer services for greater cost and far less accountability.

Privatisation (even partial) has a detrimental impact on the public health system and there is strong public support for health services remaining in public hands.

Please do not put private profits and ideology before public interest and people.

Privatisation would mean greater cost to patients, for all services provided on hospital campus covered by the private operators.

Public hospitals should remain fully public, and fully funded to serve the best interests of those who need their services.

Why is this important?

Keep our public hospitals fully public and government funded. Privatisation will increase costs, and take away accountability.

How it will be delivered

Reasons for signing

  • It's a public service for all not just the wealthy!
  • You have no mandate to sell off public services - especially those affecting the most vulnerable on our society. Hands off OUR hospitals built and run with OUR taxes. You have no right!
  • Private hospitals are more interested in profits than patient outcomes. Public may not be perfect but it's fairer than a privatised healthcare system.
