Rochester and Strood Green candidate welcomes Survation poll

Green candidate, Clive Gregory, has welcomed the recent Survation poll which put the NHS, and the impact that TTIP will have on it, at the top of people’s concerns. He has pointed out that the other four parties are backing TTIP and privatisation of the NHS and only the Greens are saying no to both. Clive goes on to say that the NHS should be focused on providing good quality care rather that profit for shareholders and that profit has no place in the NHS.

Clive Gregory, Green Party Parliamentary Candidate for Rochester and Strood says:

“This poll reflects my experience of talking to people in Rochester and Strood. Local people are desperately worried about what is happening to Medway Maritime Hospital and the NHS. It demonstrates how far off the mark the other parties are in their support for TTIP and their continued assaults on our NHS. The Green Party are the only party saying no to TTIP and the only party saying no to the privatisation of services.

“Labour, Lib Dems and the Tories have championed privatisation while in government and UKIP are no different in their thinking. We have been staunch supporters of the Keep Our NHS Public campaign and our MEPs have been leading the fight against TTIP.

“TTIP will be a death sentence for the NHS. With the rampant NHS market that wastes billions, fragments services and opens the door for private companies, the introduction of TTIP will allow US companies to take over our services far more easily.

“It is very clear that the Green Party are the true alternative. We are not wedded to corporate friends and we are the only party that are in tune with the thinking of people in Rochester and Strood.

“The NHS should be focused on providing good quality care rather that profit for shareholders. Profit has no place in the NHS”
