BPACC celebrate 63rd birthday of the NHS

Location: UK » South West » BH

Bournemouth and Poole Anti Cuts Coalition (BPACC) held a celebratory protest outside Poole Hospital
Campaigners fear that despite the government’s “listening exercise” and resulting cosmetic changes to the NHS Bill, the government’s privatisation plans are still on track. Their message to the general public is “If you want the NHS to live to see 64 - make a stand for the health service by asking your MP to oppose the Health and Social Care Bill”.
Darren Brown, BPACC chair said: “Without any action, the government’s “birthday present” to the NHS will be more and more cuts leading to job losses, reduced clinical services and rising waiting times. Allowing the private sector to take over our health service will mean the better off jumping the queue whilst most of us will have to suffer. The local MPs claim that the public support the changes to the NHS - but I think they’re living in a Westminster bubble. They need to get out and talk to ordinary people on the street, in the school playground and in the pub to really find out what we think. The NHS is popular and we must not allow the government destroy it.”
