• WHEN Islington patients are worried about privatisation of our National Health Service, some do not realise just how far the process has already gone.

Did you know the outpatients’ pharmacy at the Whittington Hospital now has to make a profit? Yet our prescriptions from it do not bear a “privatisation” stamp.

The Conservatives’ privatisation has taken over huge chunks of our NHS. That is why Islington Keep Our NHS Public and our allies in SOSNHS (www.sosnhs.org.uk) will be forming part of the Trades Union Congress’s giant demonstration this Saturday, June 18 – visit www.tuc.org.uk/DemandBetter and get involved locally.

It’s everyone’s chance to show the Tories what we think of their profit-taking policies.
