Launch of Southwark Patients Not Passports group
March 10 - 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
A free online event to launch the Southwark group of the Patients Not Passports campaign.
We will show a short film which explores the human cost of charging migrants for accessing secondary health care followed by speakers and discussion on launching a campaign in Southwark.
NHS Borderlands made by Bare Life Films tells the story of Angela, who fled persecution in Zimbabwe only to be subjected to Hostile Environment immigration policies in the UK and charged £8,000 for vital medical care. Angela’s story exposes the reality for thousands of people living in the UK who face charges for and exclusion from vital medical care, undermining the NHS’s founding commitment to universal healthcare.
- Kam Adiseshiah, Senior Immigration Solicitor at Southwark Law Centre
- Angela: Whose story is told in the film
- Laura-Jane Smith Consultant Physician King’s College Hospital
- Jan O’Malley, Lambeth and Southwark Patients Not Passports
