WHY WE’RE MARCHING
FOR THE NHS
TO:
Oppose the government’s Sustainability and Transformation
Plans and the £22 billion cut in the national NHS budget
(equivalent to approx 20% of annual spend).
Show solidarity with NHS workers, working under extreme
pressures of government cuts and staff shortages, to keep
the NHS going.
Support the national “Scrap the Cap (in public sector pay)”
campaign. Stop the scandal of NHS and other public sector
workers forced to use food banks. Return their lost income.
Reject the privatisation of our NHS and other public services.
Support the NHS (Reinstatement) Bill and the
RE-NATIONALISATION of our NHS.
Call for urgent action by the Labour party on manifesto
promises to oppose government plans, cuts and
privatisation of the NHS.
Demand urgent action by Local Authorities and the
government to deal with the crisis in social care.
