Save the NHS meeting 7 March

Are you aware of the threat to our public NHS posed by the creeping privatisation that has advanced systematically for over two decades?

Sandra Ash (from Keep Our St Helier Hospital) has been campaigning for years to improve and protect the NHS against the massive threat to local acute services at St. Helier Hospital, as well as Croydon, Kingston, Epsom and St George’s Hospitals.

In the film ‘Sell Off’, Dr Bob Gill, a GP for over 23 years explains, along with others, how the NHS has been deliberately undermined and the scale of its privatisation. (You can view the film Sell Off on YouTube at the link below). He reveals that we are in the final stages of a long and complex process of manipulation of our health service into an American-style private health insurance system.

Sell Off will also be screened from 6.30pm before the
Save the NHS meeting on 7 March in Ruskin House.

If we care about safeguarding our public NHS and don’t want our healthcare taken over by profit-seeking corporations, we must become active in defending the NHS. Please come to this meeting which will give important updates on the state of our NHS. This will better equip us to inform the public about what’s really been going on.

Meeting with Dr Bob Gill and Sandra Ash
Thursday 7 March 2019 at 7pm
Ruskin House, 23 Coombe Road, Croydon CR0 1BD

Please register for free tickets to the meeting.
We hope to see you at Ruskin House on 7 March!

Kind Regards, Cllrs Patsy Cummings & Joy Prince
