#Derbyuk People’s Assembly says “Help us to Save our #NHS ” #SOSNHS

Aside Posted on Updated on


Dear Friends

There is no need to tell you about the crisis in the NHS. Other than to say that in Derbyshire the proposal is to cut 535 NHS beds – nearly a third of the beds in Derbyshire hospitals – and to ‘save’ £219 million. Politicians won’t improve things unless there is a massive groundswell from below. So we would like you to help, even more, to make things happen.

Here are some things you can do.

Sign the petition

Our NHS needs more funding


This is being hosted by 38 Degrees but we need enough signatures to convince 38 Degrees to tell all their supporters about it. Furthermore, through 38 Degrees we can tell people who have signed about demonstrations protests and so on.

Join the protest against outside Derby City Council, Wednesday 25th January, 5.30pm

Derby City Council when they are setting the Council Tax rates.
Join the  demonstration protesting about the Council not opposing the STP plans to cut beds and funding,  at 5.30 outside the Council meeting. Then hear NHS and Social Care questions during the council meeting, in the Council Chamber.

Come to  London on March 4th for the National Demonstration
