National Demonstration – A new deal for working people
Saturday 12 May, 11am Victoria Embankment
March to Hyde Park

Coaches LEAVE Derby Bus Station Stand 27 8:00am PROMPT – we cannot wait  – … £10 waged/£5 low waged/Free unwaged & claimants

Book as soon as possible with mozgreenshields@gmail.com or text 07889 274723   Last chance to book seats! by Wed’s 9th May Midday

Why are we marching? Because real wages are still lower than before the crash in 2008. Because three million workers are stuck on zero hour contracts, in agency work and in low paid self-employment. Because hardworking public servants haven’t had a proper payrise for eight years. Because our NHS is at breaking point. And because years of cuts have led to poverty, homelessness and despair for too many.

We’re marching for the alternative. For a growing economy with great jobs in every nation and region of the UK. For a £10ph minimum wage and the right to a voice at work. For public services that are brilliant, funded and free at the point of use. And for a society that roots out racism, sexism and discrimination.

Transport has been arraigned from across the country – for more details click here.

#OurNHS is a loved and cherished part of every community. Come out and celebrate with us on 30th June. Bring your family, your friends, your loved ones and anyone who cares about the future of healthcare in this country.

The NHS belongs to us. Access to healthcare is a human right. Our post-war generation created a National Health Service that delivered world class care to all on the basis of need. For 70 years #ourNHS has set a shining example to the world of what can be achieved when we make the choice to look after the collective good.

But #ourNHS is under attack. A decade of austerity, underfunding and top down reforms have stretched our health service to breaking point. Services are being cut and cancelled, hospitals and wards are closing, there are staffing shortages across every part of the system and increasing parts of our health service are being outsourced to private companies.

Never has there been a more urgent time in her 70 year history to stand up and defend what is yours. For what the last generation built. You have paid for it. You deserve it.

Transport being arranged across the Country we will post details soon.

NHS Winter Crisis: Thousands left in ambulances

Carillion collapse highlights need for ending privatisation in the NHS
Health campaigners are urging the Government to stop rewarding private sector firms with NHS contracts and restore the health service to a publicly owned and controlled national resource, in the wake of the Carillion debacle. Read more here: http://www.thepeoplesassembly.org.uk/carillion_nhs

300,000 people on low incomes missing out on the benefits they’re due.

Get in touch, we all need to do our bit to help defeat austerity, defend the NHS and begin to invest in people and services. Still a political choice to cut and destroy rather than protect, invest and build for the long term. There are alternatives.

Dear Friends

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 Health campaigns together 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

Join the demonstration in London On Saturday 3 February.
