The dismantling of our NHS and why we need an NHS bill to reinstate it

Date/Time: 12th October 2017, 5:30pm

Venue: Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building

The NHS was built on the principles of universal care for all on the basis of need, and services free at the point of delivery.  The Health and Social Care Act 2012 legislates for the abolition of universal healthcare, break up and privatisation of the NHS, and devolution of healthcare functions.  Transformation plans to impose cuts, hospital and service closures, withdrawal of entitelement to care, and a shift to US-style accountable care organisations.  The NHS Reinstatement Bill is a response.
