REMOVING THE PRIVATE HEALTH DANGER
It is clear with the result of the 2017 General Election that there has been a shift in public thinking regarding a more socially caring society. This is only a small start. We want to see that public shift grow in confidence. Deep down the country knows that losing our greatest institution to the USA health system would be a national disaster.
This week NHS England have begun imposing a form of rationing – the Capped Expenditure Process – that forces the NHS to offer a very restricted range of services within a tightly fixed budget. All part of the Accountable Care Organisation redesign that we are fighting with our Judicial Review.

Last week the Parliamentary Labour Party discussed which bills were to be a priority for Private Members Bills. Please tell me:
Was the NHS Reinstatement Bill, currently sponsored by Margaret Greenwood MP, discussed?
Was it given high priority as a Private Members Bill?
If not, why not?
The tide of public feeling against "Austerity" means now is the time for the Labour Party to be clear and assertive in policy. Please support the NHS (Reinstatement) Bill that will enable Goverment and the public to openly discuss the truth about the situation facing the NHS and the entire country.
I want you as my MP to make the NHS (Reinstatement) Bill a priority and show that a public service NHS is top of Labour's agenda.

We need the NHS (Reinstatement) Bill to make its way into Parliament once more in 2017. The public mood has shifted in terms of wanting public services restored. Like us the public WANT the ethos of a NATIONAL Health Service. Not a privatised fragmented profit-seeking health industry.
Last week the Labour Party held discussions about Private Members Bills (PMBs). We asked them to place the NHS (Reinstatement) Bill as a priority bill to be given to an MP at the top of the list.
The NHS (Reinstatement) Bill is the only piece of legislation on the table that clear in its committment to stopping and reversing NHS privatisation. So please ask your Labour MP to make the NHS bill a priority and show that a public service NHS is top of Labour's agenda.
This is part of the deliberate attempt to create a two tier health system, by turning the NHS into a UK version of the US medicare/medicaid system that provides “accountable care” – in other words, predetermined treatment options based on financial considerations.
Accountable Care in the USA is for patients who are too poor or too ill to get private health insurance. In the UK its restrictions are designed to drive patients who can afford it, to go private – often while staying within the NHS, as the 2012 Health and Social Care Act allows hospital trusts to earn 49% of their income from private patients.
