GMB e-petition


The NHS was founded in times of great austerity following the second world war, times were really tough, disease was rife and the national debt was massive as we had to rebuild parts of Britain.

65 years later, despite David Cameron's election pledge that the NHS was safe in his hands, we are seeing the fragmentation and piece by piece privatisation of OUR NHS.

The NHS is struggling under the austerity cuts imposed by this un-elected coalition, Cameron wants it to fail to make privatisation seem like the only answer, it is not the answer and we are asking everybody to make their voices heard. It is our NHS, paid for through our taxes, for the treatment of ourselves and our families. No private company should be allowed to profit from it. Please sign our petition and forward the link to your friends, family and work colleagues.

"It will last as long as there are folk left with the faith to fight for it"
