The NHS in England is being dismantled. Only a change to the law can stop the damage. Now more than ever.
Thousands of us have contacted our MPs asking them to support the NHS Reinstatement Bill. This is making a difference. We hope that the Bill will be retabled in the 2016-2017 session of parliament by a cross party group of MPs, but this time presented by a Labour MP.
The National Health Service has been one of the UK’s greatest achievements. For 65 years it has provided a cost effective, universal health service, free at the point of need to all people irrespective of their background, circumstance or ability to pay.
Yet over the last 25 years, this founding vision has been slowly but surely eroded. The final blow was the Health and Social Care Act 2012, forcing a commercialised model on the NHS in England.
We believe that campaigning to reinstate the founding vision is critical.
