Save the NHS


The government is planning the biggest re-organisation of the NHS since it began in 1948.

It is unnecessary, unwanted, wasteful and damaging – and threatens to end the NHS as we know it. Only last year, the government promised people they wouldn’t do it. Many thousands of people have already called on the government to stop.

But they are ploughing on, ignoring public and professional opinion, out of touch with Britain. We need to make the government listen before it’s too late.

An online petition has been launched today calling on the government to drop the Health and Social Care Bill.
