Oppose the Health and Care Bill

Our NHS is under threat and time is running out. We need you all to act now and write to your MP to demand they oppose the Health and Care Bill when it returns to the House of Commons on 30 March. You can do this by using our email action tool below [scroll down].

Here's why Unite opposes the Bill:

It's being used by the government to push through major restructuring that would be damaging to patients at any time, but in the middle of a pandemic will be a disaster for healthcare services.

If this Bill is passed, all of us will be impacted – there will be more privatisation, more cuts, more cronyism. It will result in cuts to services and access to treatments. 

The Health and Care Bill will make years of underfunding, understaffing and privatisation far worse. It will cut medical and emergency services, force more people to pay for their health care and let more private companies take over services and make decisions on budgets.

The Bill also caps adult social care costs at £86,000, which will hit the average household hard, while leaving the rich protected.

Time is running out. Unite is holding a month of action on the NHS, targeting MPs in 'red wall' seats.

Billboards, ad vans and bus stops have been carrying direct messages to voters in constituencies [see examples below] where their Tory MP voted for the Bill last year.

The advert messages have carried a picture of each MP, stated: 'Last year, your MP [name] voted for NHS privatisation. This year, tell him to vote against the toxic Health and Care Bill'.

Get involved by filling in the form further down this page. We also need you to act now and write to your MP to demand they oppose the Bill when it returns to the House of Commons. You can do this using our email action link below, or you can adapt our longer letter here.
