The World Transformed: NHS for the 21st Century
September 24 - 9:00 am - 10:30 am
We are delighted to be appearing at this year’s “The World Transformed” festival in Brighton!
“Universal, equitable, comprehensive, high quality, free at the point of delivery, publicly funded and publicly accountable. But how does the NHS look now 71 years on? Underfunding and rampant privatisation are fast eroding its founding principles and we don’t have much time left to act. Join us to explore what Labour’s plan should be for the NHS of the 21st Century.
This is part of our ‘Manifesto for the Movement’ project. Over the course of the four days, hundreds of festival attendees in collaboration with policy experts will build a ‘Manifesto For The Movement’ – a radical document that will be presented to MPs at the end of the festival. Get involved in any TWT Policy Lab to be a part of this.”
