BPACC lobby Lib Dem MP
Members of the Bournemouth and Poole Anti Cuts Coalition (BPACC) lobbyed Annette Brooke MP at her surgery over the government’s plans for the NHS.
Campaigners will hand a 400,000-strong petition over to the Liberal Democrat MP; calling on the government not to break up the health service and hand it to private healthcare companies, to listen to the real experts - doctors, nurses and patients.
The event is part of a nationwide campaign organised by 38 Degrees - a group which has already run a number of successful campaigns opposed to government policies.
Darren Brown, BPACC chair said: “This is the first time that the local Liberal Democrat MP has been asked to say whether or not she supports what the government is doing to the NHS. This petition sends a very clear message that the public value the health service and don’t want to see it handed over to private companies who will end up putting profits before patients”.
