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.
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.
Old Palace Yard,
There will be workshops, lunch and speakers including Rayah Feldman (Maternity Action), Kitty Worthing (Docs Not Cops), James Skinner (Medact), Joe Rylands (Jr Doctor), John Grayson (SYMAAG), John Nicholson (Immigration Barrister), campaigners from These Walls Must Fall, Refugee Women Connect and Asylum Link Merseyside.
This Conference is a great opportunity to take forward our thinking and campaigning around social care following the commitment made at the KONP AGM in June.
Members from KONP, HCT, the Socialist Health Association, National Pensioners Convention and Green Party have come together under HCT’s banner to organise what we hope will be an exciting and challenging day. The morning will be kicked off by John Lister and a speaker from the Labour Party then there will be a range of contributions from campaign groups and trade unions fighting for better care, dignity, the ethical care charter, proper wages, conditions and training for care staff, support for carers etc.
please see our website for more infromation about why this conference is vital
