Here are some ways you can support Keep Our NHS Public in our campaigning to save the NHS right now.
Protect the NHS: Scrap the health and care bill - Sign our petition
We have to stop the Health and Care bill passing through parliament right now before it damages the NHS we know and love. It will mean the handing out of NHS contracts to private companies with friends in the government. We have seen this happening during the pandemic and it’s been a disaster. For example, £37 billion was wasted on a ‘test and trace’ service that simply didn’t work.
What are 'Integrated Care Systems' and are they an existential threat to the NHS?
We believe the implementation of Integrated Care Systems (ICS) will have a disastrous effects on the accountability, availability and access to services in the NHS as well as negatively impacting the values underpinning the formation of a universal, publicly owned and publicly run National Health Service. We're urging individuals and organisations across civil society to find out more about ICS's and fight back where we can.
