The 999 march for the #NHS begins!

From August 16 to September 6, campaigners are marching from Jarrow to London following in the footsteps of the Jarrow Crusade of 1936.

Follow #March4NHS and 999 Call for the NHS for all updates.

From the marchers:

The People's March is a perfect opportunity to build support for the NHS and to join up with amazing NHS campaigners across the country. Following the basic route of the 1936 Jarrow Crusade, the People's March for the NHS will head to Parliament.

On route we aim to make the public aware of what the coalition government has been doing to our NHS and what has been happening to our hospitals and health services.

It's really hard to passively watch the rapid dismantling, privatisation and destruction of the NHS. First we had the Health & Social Care Act, then Section 75 and more recently Clause 119 of the Care Bill.

The Government have legislated to open the NHS to the open market. We believe every penny saved in the NHS should go back into improving and developing our NHS. We dont want to see private companies operating in the NHS under the heading of 'efficiency' when we know they are accountable to their share holders, who are only interested in maximum profit before patient health care. Join us for a mile or two, or join us for ten or the full 300 miles, come to our rallies, just be part of the fightback.
