United Kingdom -Privatisation stopped by coalition of staff, patients and local community -March 27, 2014

The George Eliot Hospital has been saved from the clutches of the privateers thanks to a coalition of staff, patients, Unite activists and local community campaigners pressing to keep the hospital under public control. A community campaign, in which trade union Unite played a significant part, led the boards of George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust and the NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA) to take the decision not to pursue the procurement process to identify a partner organisation.
