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.
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 and being spun here as Integrated Care, is modelled on financial targets and not clinical decision making. The only way to meet harsh financial targets is to CUT. Cuts means Integrated Care restricts patient access to care and creates a two-tier health system. The NHS will always be there as a blue logo but it will look something like this:
A bare bones NHS that provides the (costly) acute and emergency services, since these are impossible for private companies to make a profit from. This will still be publicly funded but due to centralisation processes you may live a long way from an A&E.
There will be a limited range of so-called elective/planned treatments - NHS ENGLAND has begun reducing the menu of funded treatments forcing more people to go private. There has also been recent developments in NHS SELF-PAY/SELF-FUND.
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.
