The NHS is facing its worst crisis ever. This is a national emergency.
SOS NHS NATIONAL DEMONSTRATION
What a fantastic day Saturday 11 March was. It was an incredibly lively and sometimes moving demonstration which including a tearful minute’s silence for Covid victims at the start.
The demonstration was called to demand that the government act now to end the extreme crisis in the NHS, a crisis which is causing hundreds of unnecessary and preventable deaths every week.
It was also about showing support for all striking NHS workers – and it included large contingents of angry nurses, midwives and junior doctors.
WHAT DO WE STAND FOR?
In 2010, after a decade of investment, our NHS was delivering its best-ever performance: after more than a decade of austerity – despite heroic efforts by staff – it has sunk to its worst-ever. The problems were there before the pandemic but have been deepened by the continued high level of Covid infections. We need change now.
- Emergency funding now
- Invest in a fully publicly owned NHS & guarantee free healthcare for future generations
- Pay staff properly: without fair pay, staffing shortages will cost lives
