Assemble 12pm Tavistock Square, London WC1
March through London to Parliament
We must fight to save our NHS from destruction. The threat is real. It is happening now. Hospitals, GPs, mental health, ambulance and community services are on their knees.
Private companies are gaining an ever greater foothold within the NHS. Years of pay restraint has seen the value of NHS staff salaries reduce by 14% since 2010. The government’s Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) are a smokescreen for a massive programme of hospital and community service closures, and are its latest instrument for privatisation.
The NHS is one of our greatest achievements. We cannot allow it to be undermined and ultimately destroyed.
Our NHS, fight for it
Our NHS needs you to fight for it. We must march together, sending a clear message to the government - “the NHS will last as long as there are folk with the faith to fight for it.”
