UNISON responds to NAO report on Capita and NHS England 


Commenting on the National Audit Report which has found that Capita put NHS England patients at risk, UNISON head of health Sara Gorton said: “Despite many warnings, NHS England allowed a private company to take over and ultimately fail to deliver the safe and quality service that patients expect and deserve.

“UNISON highlighted the huge risks in these ambitious plans from the outset. If ministers want patient safety to remain at the heart of the NHS they must stop selling off services and focus instead on service quality.”
