John Burgess is the branch secretary of Barnet council Unison. He has seen at first hand Barnet’s existing attempts to privatise public services. He also has personal and professional experience of adult social care.

John has written an excellent article that gives an overview of the risks involved in Barnet’s current rush to privatisation. The final part of this tells us that Barnet council has now issued an improvement order to Catalyst Housing in connection with the recent discovery of legionella in two Barnet care homes.

Read John’s full article here on the Barnet Unison website.
