Please sign and share the following petition by the People’s Assembly.

URGENT: provide sufficient funding to the NHS NOW!

  • For a fully funded, publicly owned NHS & social care service.
  • No cuts, no closures, no privatisation.
  • End the pay restraint for NHS staff.
We must fight to save the NHS from destruction. The threat is real. It is happening now. Hospitals, GPs, mental health, ambulance and community services are on their knees.

The Red Cross has just declared the impact of the underfunding of A&E wards as a humanitarian crisis. Wards are full because sick people cannot be sent home with no care as they will die. But social care has been cut so home care is rare. People are dying as they wait for a hospital bed. This is an emergency.”

Save Our NHS guide to lobbying

Lobby your MP – top tips on what to say and how to say it

Since its inception in 1948 the NHS has been the envy of the world, it is the only fair way to ensure that everyone regardless of income gets access to treatment.  But it is under threat from privatisation.

We have to save our NHS from being destroyed by the policies of the conservative party who would prefer a private health care system similar to the USA, and we know don’t we how awful and unfair that would be. We do not want our health to depend on how much money we have, whether we can afford insurance or whether the insurance company would wriggle out of paying for our treatment should the need arise.

This concerns us all. Please take as many of the suggested actions above. If you can, please join the Demonstration on March 4th and help to make it the biggest NHS demo in the history.
