Staff at St Bernard's held an hour-long protest outside the hospital on Wednesday at what they described as the government's “stealthy privatisation” of the Gibraltar Health Authority. About 400 doctors, nurses, auxiliary and admin staff joined the protest about the use of supply workers. In response, the government said Unite the Union must have been “entirely misled” if it had been informed that any aspect of the GHA or any health services are to be privatised, as this is not the case.
