Camberwell and Peckham

“I definitely support the NHS Reinstatement Bill 2015. I’m relieved that the bill has been written because it gives people hope: there is something, ready and waiting, that can reverse some of the more disastrous ‘reforms’ of the NHS.”

 

 

Dr Carl Walker National Health Action Party East Worthing and ShorehamDr Carl Walker
National Health Action Party candidate,
East Worthing and Shoreham

“As someone working in community mental health and a campaigner against MSK privatisation in West Sussex, there is no doubt in my mind that this Bill is essential. The Bill represents the reason that I am standing for the National Health Action Party – to rid the NHS of the privatisation that is taking the best national health system in the world and selling it off to the highest bidder. The NHS Reinstatement Bill is needed now more than ever.”

 

Dr Bob Gill
National Health Action Party candidate,
Old Bexley and Sidcup

“I strongly support the NHS Reinstatement Bill which will help restore the NHS as a public service by removing market reforms that have been so damaging to patient care. Over the last 3 years having been involved with the Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign, Keep Our NHS Public and as a executive member for the National Health Action Party I have learnt of the great threat to the NHS. As a GP I have witnessed the damaging effect of privatisation on my patients. We must join forces and demand these destructive reforms are reversed.”

 

Helen Salisbury NHA Party Oxford West and AbingdonDr Helen Salisbury
National Health Action Party candidate,
Oxford West and Abingdon

“As a GP and prospective parliamentary candidate for the National Health Action Party in Oxford West and Abingdon, I fully support the NHS Reinstatement Bill. We must return to a publicly provided, fully accountable NHS which offers fair and equal access to all. Current legislation will lead us to a fragmented and inefficient service with huge sums of taxpayers money going as profits to big business and wasted in bureaucratic competition processes, rather than funding care.”

 

Dr Paul Hobday
National Health Action Party candidate,
Maidstone and the Weald

“I fully support the NHS Reinstatement Bill – it’s come like a breath of fresh air that should blow away the cobwebs we have in our democratic process that got the NHS into this mess.”

 

 

Dave Ash National Health Action PartyDave Ash
National Health Action Party candidate,
Sutton and Cheam

“As a founder member of the Keep Our St Helier Hospital (KOSHH) campaign, the NHS Reinstatement Bill quite beautifully summarises my starting point for wanting to stand for Parliament on behalf of the NHA. I believe that the NHS as originally conceived is the finest creation of any nation, and I am delighted to stand up and fight for it. I fully support the Bill.”

 

Karen Howell
National Health Action Party candidate,
Stafford

“As a parliamentary candidate for the National Health Action Party standing in Stafford and founder of the Support Stafford Hospital Group, I am totally committed to securing the NHS as a public service for future generations. The only way I feel that the NHS can be properly strategically managed, resourced and retained as a public service is through the NHS Reinstatement Bill, which will bring back full accountability and responsibility for the NHS to the government as a publicly owned service.

The general public did not give any mandate to the political parties to privatise the NHS; this must stop immediately. We have one of the most efficient health services in the world where health care is judged by need and not ability to pay. This is what the public want and the NHS Reinstatement Bill is the way to secure it as a public service for the future.”

 

Rik Evans NHA Party Truro and Falmouth 2Rik Evans
National Health Action Party candidate,
Truro and Falmouth

“I fully support the NHS Reinstatement Bill. I resigned as vice chairman and Non Executive Director from the Board of the Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust in May over the boards decision to privatise catering and cleaning services. My support for a fully funded and provided health service is absolute.”
