Demonstration Tuesday Brent Civic Centre Noon: No more 'Track & Trace' cash for SERCO - give it to Brent Public Health instead

From We Own It and Brent Trades Council

Matt Hancock needs to scrap Serco and Sitel’s failed contracts now instead of renewing them on August 23rd.

The government must give the £528 million allocated for these contract extension to local authorities and Public Health England teams instead. Privatised track and trace has been a disaster that is costing lives.

It’s time to put local public health teams in charge of the whole system. They have the tools and the local knowledge they need to do this vital work before any second wave this winter. Now they need the money.
Join us tomorrow, Tuesday 18th August 12 noon, outside Brent Civic Centre for a demonstration in support of a local Test and Trace system, run by the Brent Council Public Health department. Social distancing and please wear a mask.
