_______________

You can get in touch at campaigns@keepournhspublic.com to get involved,
or check out the FACEBOOK EVENT HERE

_______________

We’re calling on our local groups and supporters, whether experienced campaigners or new to NHS campaigning, to call a local event or action in your community right around the country.

Pick a location that resonates with your local issues and campaigning goals, a local hospital, or GP services currently under threat for example, or your local MP’s constituency offices, the local Town Hall or if your Town Centre. Call a rally and if you think you can build enough engagement and support in your area, why not consider a rally and march through the town?

This is the worse winter crisis on record and the national team are already working on materials, including leaflets, placards and more that you can hold or give out to the public to explain why you’re there which we’ll sharing very soon. Whether you’re generating your own content or using materials we can send to you, it’s essential we have this important conversation with the public about the lies and false promises told them by this Conservative Government around the NHS.

Get yourselves a megaphone or small sound system and make some noise! We want there to be space for local people to have their say; can members of your local campaign speak; can you invite friends and allies of other local campaigns or political parties and trade unions with similar views on the NHS to attend and speak too? Is your local MP friendly to your campaign, or do they have a bad record on the NHS? If the former, why not invite them along and ask them to speak too? If the latter, why not hold a protest at their offices?

It’s often a good idea to have some music too. Why not chose a playlist that will keep the mood political and energetic but also friendly, fun and approachable? There are sometimes local choirs that love to be asked to get involved with this kind of activity. Is there an NHS Choir or Socialist Choir near you that you can reach out to?

Whatever you do, make sure you’re doing all you can to publicise it and make it a success. Reach out to local press and media, often local radio stations are very interested in this kind of thing, perhaps try and get on the local radio and explain why you’re calling the event about the winter crisis in your area. If you want any support, please get in touch with us. Many of you will have done this kind of activism many times before, but not all of you will and we hope especially for those of you getting started this will be of help.

As soon as you have an event organised, tell us in the national office by emailing nationaladmin@keepournhspublic.com with the time and location so we can put it on our website and help publicise it too.

Lastly on the day don’t forget to write a brief report of how the event went, please take photos and videos and send them in. It’s all really powerful in encouraging activists and spreading the word about this urgent issue.

Read this report from an A&E nurse on why the day of action is so important.

  1. This truly stinking gov.is only interested in stealing our NHS for their own profit. That is personal profit..Sell portions to mates for a cut in the profit it earns. Our NHS belong to us the public..Lets have a referendom on privatisation. They wont do that because they know they will lose..Make a referendom the central policy of KONP and Pohns..
