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.
On 13th July 2016, the NHS Reinstatement Bill was successfully presented in the House of Commons, by Margaret Greenwood, Labour MP for Wirral West.
The Bill is scheduled for a (postponed) second reading on Friday 24th February 2017.
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.
