This group is not currently active. 

We are one of over 70 regional groups of Keep Our NHS Public, an organisation which campaigns to oppose privatisation of the NHS.

Our aims are to:

  • Restore public provision of health care. This is the only way to ensure that everyone has equal access regardless of ability to pay.
  • Remove the profit motive from health care. The NHS should be run in the interests of patients, not profit.
  • Restore the Secretary of State for Health’s accountability to parliament for the NHS. This was removed by the coalition government.
  • Raise public and media awareness about the destruction of our NHS as a public service.

NHS funding is being diverted from patient care to setting up Integrated Care Systems. These are closely based on US Accountable Care Organizations, which are key to the commercial healthcare industry:
