Our NHS is under siege

This is now a fight to save the NHS itself.  Rishi Sunak has to get serious about the crisis engulfing the NHS.  Make no mistake, patients’ lives are at risk.

Why we're striking?

Kelvin is a dedicated NHS worker and Unite member. But he is in despair at what is happening to the service. Please watch and share this powerful @PoliticsJoe with Unite the union video. Share it with your MPs – tell them this crisis needs action now.


Our NHS is on its knees. Underpaid and exhausted, NHS workers are leaving in their droves.


Across the NHS widespread staff shortages are putting patient safety at risk.


Our members are broken. 12 years of pay cuts mean they just can’t afford to work in the NHS any longer. If they vote to strike, it is to save the NHS itself.


Rishi Sunak must act. He’s running out of chances to save our NHS.


Seven out of ten people support a cost of living pay increase for NHS workers. Read it in the Mirror here
