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
Sadly this is not a quick-fix campaign. Successive governments have systematically dismantled, cut and privatised our health and social care services - and continue to do so, faster than ever.
Suddenly the stark reality of the NHS situation is revealed for all to see.
We can clearly see that the once solid coordinated NHS and Social Care infrastructre has been so badly damaged by years of underfunding and corporate greed that the impoverished NHS workforce is now almost on its knees, struggling to fight for our lives and theirs with the novel coronavirus.
At this time we are concentrating on communicating honest and verified notices regarding the COVID19 situation. We have much to say about what should be done to restore the NHS to a public service once again free from private company profiteering interference. Those statements will come when the time is right.
If ever there was proof of the need for a fully funded, government run , managed and delivered state health system - THIS IS IT!
At this moment in time we ask you to be safe, find your local NHS Campaign group who may be supporting the local hospital in a positive way eg. helping to maintain good public relations. Here is a Stay Safe Leaflet we helpdd usign using Government and NHS website information.
This week Richard Horton, Editor of The Lancet - among the world's oldest, most prestigious, and best known general medical journals, - slammed the government for their unpreparedness and disregard for human life. CLICK the link to read the full editorial and also watch the editor tell it (calmy, succinctly and truthfully) like it is on BBC Question Time. We highly recommend watching.
When this awful Coronavirus Pandemic is over - should NHS England resign?
