We are celebrating 65 years of our NHS – the greatest social benefit of any government – but our message is serious.
If we don’t act to save it – we will lose it.
The coalition government’s pro-privatisation NHS shake up coupled with a multi-billion pound funding squeeze is putting our NHS at grave risk.
Local communities are losing A&E units, hospital beds, maternity wards, and other NHS services. Waiting queues are growing, rationing is rife and, staff not sacked, are being overstretched to
breaking point.
Picking up the pieces are private companies who are set to make billions of pounds from our health.
Nye Bevan, founding father of the NHS, warned that “the NHS will survive as long as there are folks with the faith to fight for it” We need to fight for it NOW.

Save our NHS
