A grassroots NHS campaign. Not affiliated to any of the political parties.
We are a national campaign group that aims to restore the NHS so that it is
free at the point of clinical need for everyone
publicly funded, managed, provided and staffed
with the Secretary of State for Health fully responsible for providing and promoting a comprehensive, universal health service
Obviously we have our work cut out, given that successive governments have systematically dismantled, cut and privatised our health and social care services - and continue to do so, faster than ever.
That’s why we've teamed up with campaign groups across the country to focus on stopping the imposition of USA-style Accountable Care on our NHS .
USA Accountable Care, now rebranded here as Integrated Care, is modelled on finance not clinical decision making. Integrated Care restricts patient access to care and creates a two-tier health system which will look something like this:
A bare bones publicly funded NHS that provides the (costly) acute and emergency services for everyone, since these are impossible for private companies to make a profit from. Along with a limited range of
so-called elective/planned treatments
A private health service for those who can afford private health insurance or self-payment, that will provide access to the full range of health care.
Despite the government rhetoric - Our NHS is still being SLASHED, TRASHED & PRIVATISED.
We hope our website is a useful campaign resource - whether you are part of a local group, a national group or simply a member of the public wondering how to take action to defend our NHS.
Join us in fighting to defend and restore our #NHS4ALL
The 2019 website is in four main parts.
The most important being our current #NHS4ALL Campaign.
