Oppose the Health and Care Bill: join the NHS day of action on 26 February
Our NHS is under threat. The government is using the Health and Care Bill to push through major restructuring that would be damaging to patients at any time, but in the middle of a pandemic will be a disaster for healthcare services.
If this Bill is passed, all of us will be impacted – there will be more privatisation, more cuts, more cronyism. It will result in cuts to services and access to treatments.
The Health and Care Bill will make years of underfunding, understaffing and privatisation far worse. It will cut medical and emergency services, force more people to pay for their health care and let more private companies take over services and make decisions on budgets.
The Bill also caps adult social care costs at £86,000, which will hit the average household hard, while leaving the rich protected.
Help us take action. If you want to help campaign for any of these issues or have anything you wish to be discussed please Contact us here . Join us!
