‘NHS in Crisis: Fighting Back to Win’ – London Conference 4 November

Share this post..

Health Campaigns Together organised the biggest-ever demonstration in defence of the NHS in London on March 4 in collaboration with KONP, Peoples Assembly and with backing from a dozen unions.

Now Health Campaigns Together is building for a great conference of NHS campaigners to organise the fightback to save the NHS.

Venue:                  Hammersmith Town Hall

Date/time:    Saturday 4 November    Registration:    10.30    Conference:    11 am to 4 pm BOOK NOW

Registration from 10am:  Doors open for stalls, coffee and registration from 10am, to ensure a prompt start at 11

Our demands:   The broad themes and demands of the conference will be the same as those that galvanised hundreds of thousands at #ourNHS demo 4 March 2017:

  • No Cuts or Closures
  • No Privatisation
  • Fair Pay for NHS staff

Our speakers:  We have an exciting platform of speakers confirmed from leading trade unions and councillors to local campaigners and life-long activists, including:

  • Dr Chaand Nagpaul, Chair of BMA
  • Sara Gorton, head of Unison health
  • Ken Loach, BAFTA award winning film director
  • Julian Bell and Steven Cowan, Council Leaders who have rejected STPs in London

Your role:  But the most important contributions will come from you and the  delegates. It is absolutely essential that we hear from you and we urge you to come and share your experiences, ideas, strategies and vision with like-minded others at this conference to build pressure against a collapsing Government. We expect this to be an important and influential turning point for #ourNHS.

Agenda for the day:  Following introductory speakers, the format of the day will be structured into 2 halves:

  1. Workshops on key campaigning issues identified by our affiliates
  2. Geographical networking and alliance building

This will then be closed by a Plenary Session.

A finalised agenda will be published at: www.healthcampaignstogether.com and a detailed leaflet for the event which we encourage you to print and share is available for download or in printed form.
