Health Campaigns Together & The People’s Assembly have called for a Day of Protest on Saturday 3 February in response to the worsening Winter Crisis.

Dates, times, transport details on events page

 

Our NHS is in a serious crisis. Ambulances queuing for hours to hand over seriously ill patients, patients left in corridors waiting for beds, operations postponed, and mental health patients taken hundreds of miles to find a bed.

Theresa May & Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt issued a hollow apology and deny any crisis! But the problem comes from deliberate government policy of cuts, bed closures, pay restraint and privatisation. Our NHS has been starved of funding with inadequate investment in staff and resources. 8,000 front line beds and 20% of mental health beds have closed. Eight years of below inflation pay settlements have contributed to 100,000 vacant posts for health professionals – leaving no spare capacity for peaks of demand & increasing the pressure on the dedicated staff who remain.

We don’t want apologies, we demand change. On 3 February we are organising a national day of action – an emergency demonstration in London and nationwide protests to demand:

End the winter crisis with a cash injection to restore the NHS budget

Commit to increased funding each year

End the cap on NHS pay

No cuts, no closures, no privatisation

Emergency Demonstration – London

Assemble: 12noon, Gower Street, London WC1E (near UCL Hospital)
Rally: Trafalgar Sq or Whitehall (to be confirmed)
Please head to The People’s Assembly website for transport details.

Regional protests

There will be local and regional events as part of the day of protest around the country.
More details soon from HCT, The People’s Assembly and KONP websites

  1. Signed letter from Doctors on NHS Crisis to MRS MAY that patients are dying in Ambulances- On corridors, through excessive traveling time to get treatment as their local A&E as been closed, How much more do we need to note NH England and the Minister Jeremy Hunt is not working in the best interest of patient or the public at large? When will we make him accountable for his actions, removing that constant SMIRK from his face?
