A grassroots NHS campaign. Not affiliated to any of the political parties.
We are a grassroots campaign group with no official ties or affiliation to any of the political parties, unions or major institutional bodies. 999 Call for the NHS members come from a variety of political directions but as a team we are fiercely independent and understand that we have to work with and lobby everyone.
We are fighting to reinstate the NHS as a comprehensive & universal #NHS4ALL - properly publicly funded, free of all privatisation and the marketised for-profit model of healthcare.
We began life in 2014 with the Jarrow to London People’s March for the NHS. Since then we've marched, petitioned, helped to make referrals of lousy cuts proposals to the Secretary of State, held Judicial Reviews, and done endless fact finding research into NHS cuts and privatisation policies, schemes and proposals. We have lobbied Councillors, MPs, parliamentary candidates and various Party Conferences.
Five years on we are proud to be working alongside other campaign groups up and down the country.

Campaigners are reminding officials that despite their denials - if it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck...
By reducing the NHS "Menu" of services people (those who can afford it) are forced to turn to private healthcare - or worse begin paying inside the NHS with co-payments, self-pay and top-ups - just as in the USA.
June 2019: A recent discovery at Warrington NHS Foundation Trust has now proved we are not scaremongering. See this link - SHRINKING THE NHS: SELF PAY AT NHS WARRINGTON
You know how the dentist works... that's what the NHS will become unless we demand MPs across the board - stop the handover to big business NOW.
