A proper grassroots NHS campaign. Not affiliated to any of the political parties.
With the big surge in new public hope and understanding of Austerity - the economic lie that is nothing more than a euphemism for cuts to all our public services...
NOW IS THE TIME to listen to the people
NOW IS THE TIME to make a move toward a more decent caring society
NOW IS THE TIME to commit the Labour Party to renationalisation of the NHS.
There is no other way of saving it from destruction. Curbing "excessive profits" and making the NHS the "preferred provider" are not enough and it will not save the NHS.
Commercial and internal markets with their transaction costs and expensive competitive tendering of services and resources must be removed from the NHS.
And remove the profit seeking organisations - so innocently called "external partners" - that are embedded in the upper strata of NHS management.
Right now the 44 NHS England Sustainability & Transformation Plans are working their way towards setting up 44 USA style Accountable Care Organisations where our public budgets for medical and social care could be handed to non-NHS organisations to operate as they see fit with profit being their main motive.
Please all MPs who consider themselves socially minded, it's time to be realistic and face the truth. We are about to lose our NHS. We MUST stop that from happening.
Parliamentarians you are failing the country. NOW IS THE TIME to examine your conscience. Because at the moment what politics is offering is not enough to save the NHS from the demolition track of decades of attack by big business.
If nothing changes - that track is due to fall off a big cliff in 2020/1.
A funeral hearse is driving the NHS down that track.
If politicians won't we have to try.
We've been working with public law firm LEIGH DAY to research possible cases where we can legally challenge NHS England and the Sustainability & Transformation Plans.
After 18 months of detective work
we're about to challenge the introduction of a new ACO Contract that we believe will end comprehensive healthcare in this country.

What good is shouting for funding when you know the STPs are the vehicle for American style Privatisation?

Renationalisation is a huge move. But it is the only move.
A fresh clean sweep of all the fragmented, complex and bureacratic business administration that has swamped our NHS since the 1980s.
The first thing we campaigners have to do is convince the politicians that the nation wants and deserves a fully nationalised health service. Not one plagued by American health companies and the likes of Richard branson putting profit before patient care.
That's why we are continuing to support the NHS (Reinstatement) BILL. It is the only piece of potential legislation in Parliament that openly states it seeks to reinstate the NHS back in to public hands - our hands, our goverment responsibilty, our funding.

And dont fall for the old argument
"We cant afford another top-down reorganisation"
Ask any member of NHS Staff - from porters to nurses to consultants - they will tell you since the internal market culture came in there has been nothing but continual re (dis) organisation of the health service.
That's what the private sector does in order to gain control of a public service. It "transforms" it to what it needs it to be for THEIR purpose not OURS.
With the NHS about to be handed to private companies acting as Accountable Care Organsiations
