Join the ‘Reclaim your NHS’ regional demonstration, April 6th, York

P1000334

What you need to know about changes to the NHS:

A 2012 act of parliament raises the 2% limit on private care in NHS hospitals to 49%

i.e. only half the present  service is now guaranteed to NHS patients

Private companies must be allowed to bid for NHS contracts

i.e. public (taxpayers’) money – your money – will provide private profits

We all risk being forced into buying private health insurance (those who can afford it)

 Find out more on April 6th in York at a public march and rally 

 12 noon –  2pm from the Minster to St Sampson’s Square

Assemble Dean’s Park next to York Minster

Hear health care experts explain the changes, and what we can do to reclaim the NHS.

Speakers:  Doctors John Ashton and John Puntis; James Alexander, Labour Leader of York City Council; Coun. Andrew Cooper, Kirklees Green Party ; Dermot Rathbone, Save Our Local NHS Hull and East Yorks. David Byrom, chair of Mid Yorks Hospitals Unison Branch; Jillian Creasy GP, Leader Sheffield Green Party.

Bring banners, placards, musical instruments, costumes etc to make an impact, and let us shout up for a publicly owned, comprehensive health service where it’s co-operation not competition that counts, and people not profit call the shots.

March organised by Defend our NHS/ Keep Our NHS Public groups from York, Leeds, Hull, Bradford, Kirklees, Calderdale and Harrogate.
