Photos from the York March and Rally for the NHS Saturday, April 7 2018

Although Defend our NHS York has been campaigning for the National Health Service since 2009 we were pleased that York CLP has finally initiated an action to defend it. We have held several marches in the City over the years, along with meetings supported by the Labour Party, our current MP Rachael Maskell and Trades Council but finally our small group is seeing a coming together of other bodies to help as it approaches its 70th birthday and death throes as a result of a thousand cuts.

York March and Rally for the NHS Saturday, April 7 at 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Assemble outside York Minster at 10.30am – 11.00am
Depart to march round city centre via St Helen’s Square at 11.00am
Rally in St Helen’s Square 12.00pm – 12.30pm

None of us are immortal. None of us are immune to sickness or health problems.

That’s why the Labour Government established the NHS in 1945, to ensure the most up-to-date health care is delivered according to people’s needs, when they need it, free at the point of use.

Seventy years later the NHS is in crisis. Years of Tory austerity and privatisation has brought this precious lifeline and our whole social care system to their knees.

Now we need to stand up for the NHS.

Labour plans to save the NHS by:

– Setting an emergency budget to solve the initial spending crisis through a massive injection of funding.
– Training thousands of new doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to tackle chronic staffing shortages.
– Ending decades of privatisation and wasteful PFI schemes.
– Investing in our social care system on a local level so that it works effectively with the NHS.
– Funding our mental health services properly so this vital area of care is no longer neglected.

What WE can do to help Save the NHS:

– Come to the demonstration in York on 7 April.
– Join the Labour Party to build a kinder, more equal Britain.
– Ensure a Labour government is elected: For The Many, Not The Few

Please like, share and spread the word!

NHS in Crisis – Emergency Day of Protest Saturday 3 February, 11am York District Hospital

Emergency Day of Protest Saturday 3 February, 11 am York District Hospital or 12:30 Leeds general Infirmary

If you aren’t travelling down to London for the national demonstration called by Health Campaigns Together and the People’s Assembly join local supporters outside York District Hospital to express support for the staff there and opposition to the government actions since 2010 that have brought about a string of winter crises culminating in the current one we are in the midst of. This will also act in support of Facilities staff there who may be facing the threat of being privatised.

Alternatively you could travel to Leeds for the rally and march meeting at 12.30 outside Jubilee Wing / A+E entrance of Leeds General Infirmary

Stop York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust from Privatising its Estates and Facilities Services

York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust are “actively exploring” an alternative model for delivering estates and facilities service by setting up a limited liability company to run the porters, caterers, cleaners, maintenance staff and more.

This type of venture, described by one Member of Parliament as a “VAT scam” will ultimately lead to lower wages and poorer conditions for hundreds of staff, and amount to “backdoor privatisation” of the NHS. We ask that the Trust halts the exploration and looks to care for its employees as part of the National Health Service.
