LABOUR VS. LABOR:

Nurses launch legal fight to halt health contracts plan (John Carvel, October 31, 2005, Guardian)

Leaders of the nursing profession will launch legal action against the health secretary, Patricia Hewitt, today to try to make her rethink plans to "privatise" local health services.

The Royal College of Nursing will apply for judicial review of the decision to contract out district nursing, chiropody, family planning and other community health services provided outside hospitals. The college fears that 250,000 health workers' jobs are at risk from a policy that would reduce the NHS to "little more than a logo", organising services provided by other organisations.


And the Left hates logos.
