Sign the petition – Women’s lives matter #kickoutcapita
NHS England gave Capita, a contract to provide GP back-office services. In the space of one month another serious failure has come to light that once again puts women at risk.
“Another 3,591 women were not sent information on cervical screening as a result of errors by Capita, NHS England has said. Last month, it emerged that 47,708 women did not receive a smear test invitation, reminder or results between January and June because of Capita’s failure to send out letters.
On Wednesday, NHSE said the number had risen to more than 50,000 after a review uncovered more correspondence from last year that was not sent.”
Dr Richard Vautrey, the BMA GP committee chair, repeated the doctors’ union’s demand for the contractor to be stripped of its contract. “This is just the latest in a long line of failures since Capita took over a number of GP services in 2015, and yet NHS England have not demonstrated to the profession that they are serious at addressing what ultimately they are responsible for,” he said.
