NHS Update

The future of Fujitsuís NHS contract still remains unclear. There are no staff in the Manchester bargaining unit still at risk of redundancy, but there are some who might TUPE to a future supplier (probably BT). Concerns about TUPE have obviously increased with BTís announcement of redundancies.
Outside Manchester there remain staff at risk of redundancy. Following lobbying by UNITE, Connecting For Health (CFH) had agreed to fund the jobs up to the end of January to allow time for negotiations between CFH, BT and Fujitsu to progress. It is now clear that agreement on a TUPE is unlikely by this time, so staff were concerned that redundancies might be imminent again. UNITE National Officer Peter Skyte has once again written to Ben Bradshaw, the health minister, seeking an extension of the funding.
