A coalition of health unions, community campaigners and patients have been leading a lengthy campaign to save George Eliot Hospital from being flogged off to a private provider and demanding that the hospital be kept in public hands.
And today victory for the campaign was announced, with the hospital's future now secure under NHS management.
The hospital had made huge improvements following te Keogh report and has demonstrably shown that the NHS is the most effective way of turning around hospitals.
The people of Nuneaton have spoken. The NHS is not for sale - it's time the Government took stock and abandons any future attempts to sell the NHS.
