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.
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 www.goingtowork.org.uk
