This conference brings together medical organisations already involved in defending and extending the UK’s health and social care systems.  There seems to be agreement that:

  • What is planned for the NHS will destroy its ethos & result in poorer care
  • Pressure on staff is unsustainable, often unsafe & has resulted in unacceptable workloads and levels of stress.
  • Campaigns involving doctors have shown how important doctors can be in attracting media attention

Recent political events show that many people want something hopeful and positive from politicians. This chimes with the popularity of the NHS as a publicly owned and provided, high quality service and the unpopularity of the privatisation agenda

Doctors and medical students will have greater impact  if they can work closer together, in organisations and as supporters, We hope that by agreeing common ground and discussing ‘the difficult bits’ doctors and students will be more able to campaign for a better NHS and social care future for patients and staff…

Workshops to include: 

NHS worth fighting for: (fairer funding, deprivation, PFI)

Devolution of health care (Devo Manc and implications)

Health Care for victims of torture, asylum seekers & refugees
