NHS The Campaign to save our NHS this is your guide to actions across the UK.

Action to defend the NHS is urgent. At least 10 hospitals in London have casualty and maternity departments threatened with closure. Now they want to sell off half of the Whittington hospital, and even more NHS privatisation is planned.  

25,000 people marched in Lewisham alone. It is time for us to take to the streets everywhere until we force the government to back down. Support these actions:
  • Action today as Jeremy Hunt makes an announcement about Lewisham Hospital
  • Week of Action to Defend London's NHS 09-16 February
