“the NHS will last as long as there are folk left with the faith to fight for it.” – Aneurin Bevan 1948
From a local activist: “The Health and Social Care Bill will back in political focus this February. Unfortunately public awareness of the dire implications of the NHS reforms has not been great, yet surely the NHS is a safety net we all need in our lives. The medical profession are extremely concerned as are many that have shown widespread opposition to the Bill over the past 18 months. To be honest the opposition has failed to reach out to the mainstream public with the message. In order to attempt and rebalance this, and in the absence of a national demo, can anyone interested in raising public awareness locally, and working together with other local groups attend this meeting so we can plan an NHS action for Sunday 29th January.”
