Welcome to the engine room of our #VoteNHS campaign for the 2019 General Election! We are building a campaign up and down the country to save our NHS and get rid of this Tory government - and we want you involved!
To read more about why we are campaigning for voters to vote against the Conservative Party in this election and to top up your knowledge of NHS issues, see our Where we stand: election statement and our article "Ten things every voter should know about the NHS". Below, you can watch our flagship election video, "So you're thinking of voting Conservative - 2019", in which real health workers speak directly about what's happening in our NHS and why we need a change of government.
Please share this as widely as you can on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere!
What you can do
To turn the tables on this Conservative government, we need as many people as possible taking action by any means they can: canvassing, leafleting on the street, conversations with friends and family, social media, and more. Below you’ll find more information on how to get involved. Remember you can also find your nearest local-level Keep Our NHS Public campaigning group at any time through our Local Groups page, and get in touch to find out what they’re doing.
If you are looking for our election leaflets, see the "Leaflets and materials" section below.
Take part in the #VoteNHS Roadshow tour
The #VoteNHS Roadshow is a tour of events to bring the message to every part of the country that our NHS isn’t safe in this Tory government’s hands. See our Events page for a full list of upcoming events.
You can find the local organisers for a given area via our Local Groups page and contact them with the information there. More help with promoting and carrying out events is always welcome!
Raise your voice at local hustings and election events
Most MPs will be carrying out some kind of hustings or other campaign events in their area, which you can go along to and make yourself heard about the NHS. To find events in your area, search around online (you can find your MP here, then google their name and “hustings”) and try checking any local and regional news sources.
Click here to download our Hustings Guide, which gives NHS questions to put to MPs of the main parties.
Share our material online
Social media is a key battleground in this election. The Tories have huge resources to flood communication channels with their messaging and carry out online “dirty tricks” – but we have people power.
Sharing content from Keep Our NHS Public and our sister organisation, Health Campaigns Together, can make a big difference. Please like the HCT and Keep Our NHS Public Facebook pages and the Keep Our NHS Public Twitter page, and also invite friends to like the Facebook pages. To invite friends, click the options menu with the icon of three horizontal dots at the top of our page, then select “Invite friends”.
Chip in to fund the campaign
We are raising money to fuel our election campaign. We’ve already raised an incredible £13,000 and counting – but we can do much more!
Please give as generously as you can to our #NHSforAll Crowdfunding campaign - click the image below:

As part of our election campaigning we're continuing our joint campaign with We Own It to highlight the immediate danger facing the NHS in trade deals, until commercial contracts and privatisation are ended in the NHS. We'll be asking MPs to sign our #HandsOffOurNHS pledge. You can find more information about the campaign here and download an image to use in your campaigning here.
By checking the voting record of your local MP on the NHS, on trade, on austerity and more you can better tailor your local campaigning activity. Use the TheyWorkForYou tool here, to find out where your MP stands on the things that count.
