THE PEOPLE's VOICE

Find your name if you signed the letter. Share it with friends. The Bill gets its 2nd Reading on March 11th 2016.

megaphone

GO TO THE PUBLIC CALL!

 

On March 11 the NHS (Reinstatement) Bill 2015 was presented in Parliament with cross-party support. Its policies would comprehensively reinstate the NHS throughout England.

 

The Bill’s policies restore the Secretary of State for Health's duty to provide universal listed health services throughout England based on people's needs and not their ability to pay.

 

The Bill abolishes the expensive internal and external market, stops the break up of the NHS and returns the NHS to public control and accountability. This is vital to protect the NHS from EU trade treaties and others in the pipeline like TTIP.

 

The Bill ends the high costs to the NHS of PFI schemes. By making PFI debts a Treasury responsibility it removes the exorbitant costs of PFI from the NHS and enables the State to negotiate restoration of PFI services and assets into public ownership.

 

The British Medical Association, representing 150,000 doctors, has stated publicly that their members want a publicly funded and publicly provided national health service. It supports the principles behind the legislation which the NHS (Reinstatement) Bill proposes.

 

Many MP’s and PPC’s and some political parties now support the Bill www.nhsbill2015.org/our-supporters

 

We call on the public to support the NHS Bill 2015 and to ensure that their parliamentary MPs now commit to supporting the reinstatement of the NHS through the Bill and to ensuring it is in the first Queen's speech after the Election.

THE OPEN LETTER

And it was signed by 1000's of us

Check if your name is now listed on the PUBLIC SUPPORT CALL. CLick on the megaphone.

Please note this letter is now an historical item. But we are keeping it because it shows the huge amount of support that exists for the NHS BILL which aims to return the NHS to the public - as intended when it was created. It is worth remembering.
