The national NHS demo on 4th Feb is an opportunity to send a message to the government: “The NHS will last as long as there are folk with the faith to fight for it.”

Since the Tories won the election in 2010 our NHS has been on life support, fighting for survival.

This Tory government has created a funding crisis and has sold off chunks of the NHS to private providers. They have caused increased waiting times, ward closures and cuts to staffing, putting unfair pressure on hospitals, GPs and mental health services.

The NHS is one of our greatest achievements. We cannot allow it to be undermined and ultimately destroyed.

Our NHS needs you to fight for it, and this demonstration will speak out strongly to save the NHS.

Join the national demo on Saturday March 4th

Saturday 4th March, assemble 12pm Tavistock Square, London WC1
