NHS at 70: Free, for all, forever
WhenSaturday, 30th June 2018
WherePortland Place, London, W1A, United Kingdom
On 30th June, join hundreds of others celebrating the importance of #OurNHS in its 70th year, an event organised by The People's Assembly, Health Campaigns Together, Trades Union Congress, Unison, Unite, GMB, British Medical Association, Royal College of Nursing, Royal College of Midwives, CSP, BDA, SoR.
"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 our NHS 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."
Say yes to:
- A publicly owned NHS that is free for all
- Proper funding and proper staffing
- Support for our wonderful NHS workers
- World class services for every community.
Assemble 12pm, Portland Place, London W1A (nearest tubes: Oxford Circus / Great Portland St). Parade route to 10 Downing Street, Whitehall. Transport being arranged across the country, with details to follow at the link below.
