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.

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.
