Health campaigners believe they can make a difference to the outcome of the election! Writes Candy Udwin, Chair London Keep Our NHS Public

 

#VOTENHS – GET ON BOARD THE ROAD SHOW

Health campaigners believe they can make a difference to the outcome of the election! They are organising to mobilise all those who care about the state of the health service to Vote NHS. The Health Service is a key election issue and it is not safe in the hands of this Tory government. Campaigners plan not just to get across the arguments but also the alternative movement that is hidden by the media.  The louder the campaigning the more confidence to mobilise those who want change.

And the campaigning makes a difference. Labour have pledged a moratorium on hospital closures and STPS. This is significant step and meets the demands that health campaigners have been putting, but of course it has had virtually no press coverage from those who don’t want to see Jeremy Corbyn succeed.

#VOTE NHS – JOIN THE NHS ROADSHOW

Keep Our NHS Public and other local campaigns are joining forces with the #VoteNHS Road Show
