CORONAVIRUS HUB: Covid-19 Campaigns and latest news

Keep Our NHS Public is committed to supporting the NHS and its workers as they tackle the current coronavirus crisis. You can read our latest position statement on our news pages.

Here is some information about our campaign so far, including ways you can help.

Public enquiry

Keep Our NHS Public is proud to support the recent call by families of the bereaved for a public enquiry into the Government’s handling of the Covid crisis.

Recent reports from the Office of National Statistics show that England has the largest number of excess deaths during the period of the Covid-19 epidemic than any other European country. This statistic provides a reliable comparison as it cuts out all of the differences in how deaths are recorded.  It is therefore a genuine measure of the performance of the government, and shows it to have been devastatingly poor at looking after us.  There are tens of thousands of bereaved families who are having to live with the conseqences.  Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice are calling for an immediate public enquiry.  Support them here:

You can sign and share the petition at Change.org.
