It has been reported in The Guardian that the NHS is safeguarded from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). But John Hilary, Executive Director of War on Want dismisses these claims as efforts by TTIP advocates to bamboozle us:

‘We should not be reassured by the convenient “leak” of a private letter between key TTIP advocates claiming the treaty poses no threat to the NHS.’ Writes Hilary.

This short video follows the journey of cancer patient Paul Giles. “I’m really wary of the effect of TTIP on the NHS” He says. “It feels like I’m going to be put on somebody’s profit and loss account”.
