Save the Date – Save our NHS – 7 March 2012

Join the mass day of action to save our NHS – Wednesday, 7 March from 1pm, Houses of Parliament, London.

Find out the latest transport details and coordinators from Unite’s regions.

In less than three months the government’s Health and Social Care bill will be law. This is a national emergency.  Unite says that if you want a NHS that is fair, where treatment depends on need and not the ability to pay then the bill must be dropped. Our NHS is a national treasure that we should all be proud of. It has cared for generations of working people. It places fairness at the heart of our society. The bill puts profit before patient care and will destroy the NHS that we know and love.

You need the NHS – now it needs you

Please pledge to be part of this key lobby of parliament
When: Wednesday 7 March from 1pm to 5pm.
Where: The Library, Central Methodist Hall, Westminster, London SW1H

Your help is needed to kill this bill

You might like to know about the petition to Save the NHS. Right now the government is rushing through plans which experts, and groups representing doctors and nurses, warn could break the NHS up and hand control to private health companies. It’s also a huge waste of money at a time when funding is already squeezed with beds and wards being cut.

It worked when enough of us signed the petition against privatising England’s forests. The more of us that sign up to Save the NHS, the more chance we have of winning. Please sign now:
