GMB is seeking assurances from NHS ambulance trusts of no further raising of response times targets following avoidable deaths on the south coast.
GMB Southern have members in dozens of NHS Trusts all over the region, from South London to the South Coast, from Bournemouth to Brighton. Our members can rely on our excellent record in defending their rights, on campaigning to bring outsourced services back in to the NHS and on improving their pay, contract terms and conditions at work.
Hospital workers are to strike at Maudsley, Lambeth and Bethlem hospitals on Monday 21st March for a living wage, sick pay and unsocial hours payments.
GMB analysis of ambulance response times show 30% of life or death emergency calls are not responded to within 8 minutes.
GMB have warned that Sussex clinical commissioning groups are taking huge risks in the outsourcing of patients transport services.
GMB members will be holding a protest tomorrow outside of Bethlem Royal hospital (Monks Orchard Road, Beckenham, BR3 3BX) tomorrow between 2.30pm – 3.30pm.
