All together for the NHS

Today marks the launch of a concerted campaign to save the NHS. Building on last Saturday's national mobilisation against cuts, unions and NHS campaigners will be holding lobbies, marches and protests in opposition to the Con Dem Government's Health and Social Care Bill':

Dave Prentis UNISON General Secretary said: “The Government is a lone voice for NHS privatisation and by turning their back on the electorate, they are turning the clocks back on health care across the UK. Nye Bevan provides us with this inspirational quote - “The NHS will last as long as there are folks left with the faith to fight for it” – and we are ready to fight tooth and nail for it.”

UNISON members will be taking action across the country and details of local events can be found here:
