IT’S A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH: Communities united fighting for our public services

This Government and the previous Coalition have set out to dismantle the Welfare State and destroy all our public services with £billions in cuts and privatisation. Tens of thousands campaigners round the country are fighting to stop them.

The march will bring communities from across Brighton and Hove and beyond together in a huge show of solidarity to tell Government and Brighton and Hove Council that we will not accept attacks on our public services which are depriving people of basic rights and killing them.

Scrap the ICP Contract: Rally and petition to save the NHS

NHS England is consulting on the contract for a new model of health and social care provision that threatens the break-up of the NHS into units run by ‘Integrated Care Providers’ – or ‘ICPs’. Each of these ‘business units’ would control spending and rationing of healthcare for populations of up to 500,000 each. They will dis-integrate health and social care and put Finance before patient care.

Keep Our NHS Public, Heath Campaigns Together, We Own It and #JR4NHS have called a joint protest to draw attention to the Governments plans to continue the privatisation of our NHS. After we've assembled at Parliament we'll be handing in our petition to scrap ICPs at the Department of Health and Social Care on Victoria St, (Westminster, London SW1H 0EU). You can still sign the petition here.
