TTIP and the Scottish NHS

If the Scottish NHS is not exempt from TTIP it will be a disaster. The Scottish Government has so far protected the NHS as much as it can within the limits of the Scottish budget. But TTIP will mean we won’t have a choice, we will be forced to open up NHS services to multinational companies in Europe and America. If we refuse we can be sued by corporate lawyers in secret intra-state courts. The UK Government’s position is now absolutely clear: they are not seeking exemptions from TTIP, and therefore we can only protect the Scottish NHS from privatisation by voting Yes.
