Support NHS Staff

Support those working for our NHS

Understaffing has exacerbated the problems caused by underfunding and privatisation of the NHS and is set to get worse.

There are currently 40,000 nurse vacancies in England alone, and it is predicted the NHS will have a staffing shortfall of 250,000 by 2030. Still, the Government refuses to adequately fund, train and take measures to retain valuable NHS staff.

Keep Our NHS Public supported the junior doctors strike in 2016 and has continued to support NHS staff demanding better working conditions. Find out more about the junior doctor’s campaign.
