15 January 2018 — The Peoples Assembly
12pm, Saturday 3 February
Assemble Gower Street Central London WC1
The People’s Assembly and Health Campaigns Together have teamed up again to respond to the worst NHS crisis in history.
We’re calling on everyone; all campaigns and local groups, all round the country – to come down to London and demand proper funding, beds and full staffing levels on fair pay.
* If you can’t make it, there are some events going on regionally (details coming soon).
The Crisis in our NHS deepens today as leaked memos show that unqualified student health workers are being called upon to step in and help as services continue to fail to deliver. This comes the day after twelve major Trade Unions call on the government to properly fund our NHS.
On top of all that private outsourcing firm Carillion, a major service provider across the transport, construction and health care sectors, faces liquidation this morning after warnings of financial ill health, which could leave thousands of jobs at risk. Most worryingly, quality of care and lives, are also under threat as Carillion is responsible for 200 NHS operating theatres, 11,800 beds and makes 18,500 NHS patient meals a day.
The timing could not be worse for an NHS dragged to the brink of ruin by a wilful Tory government, ideologically committed to privatisation at any cost. We have to get the #ToriesOut of office now.
We’ll be posting information about local events as it comes in so keep an eye on the website.
Check out our Transport page for details of transport near you, and if you have transport details please send it in so we can add it to the list.

Lastly, we’re recommending people call on all friendly organisations and campaigns for support. Please contact your Trade Union Branch, Trades Council, Campaign group, Constituency Labour Party and submit the Model Motion.
This needs to be big. #FundOurNHS #ToriesOut
See you in the streets.
