Save our NHSSave Our NHS

The government's controversial Health and Social Care Bill has cleared both Houses of Parliament and is now likely to pass into law. This is a major blow, but for us and the other groups and organisations campaigning against the Bill, the fight for our NHS is far from over.

It's important that we don't let up on our opposition to what the government are doing with our Health Service. The changes, whilst highly damaging to the principles of the service, only affect England, and are reversible. We can and will restore and retain our NHS.

NHS Bill clears Parliament: Help hold MPs to account

In the meantime though, one practical thing you could do today is to please check the voting lists to see how your own MP stood on the final debate. If your MP voted for the Bill, please write a letter to your local paper, to help get their actions on record in their constituency. You can use our online tool to help find the larger publications in your region, and send them a message. for more information visit
