DHL to supply hospital equipment

The NHS has struck a deal with German company DHL to privatise the supplying of goods and equipment to hospitals.

From 1 October, DHL – best known for delivering parcels – will supply everything from stationery to bed linen and MRI scanners to English hospitals.

The deal is opposed by trade unions and will see 1,700 NHS employees transferred to the private sector.
