So Sir Peter Bottomely M.P.-where do you stand on the NHS? Bankers or Health Care? No to NHS cuts.

Thursday 27th January 2011
The second reading the Health and Social Care Bill is on Monday 31st January. Now is the time to write to your MP and ask them to KILL THE BILL. You can ask them to vote against the Bill, or abstain at the very least. This is especially important if your MP is a member of the coalition government. If you have the time please send us a copy of any replies from MPs.

The NHS White Paper

The White paper on Health Equity and Excellence: Liberating the NHS published on 12 July 2010 poses a major threat to the NHS. If these radical proposals - which did not appear in either of the coalition manifestos - are enacted when the bill is debated in the autumn, it will be the end of the NHS as we know and love it.

Worthing Solidarity Network says:


Health care at the point of need is a right and we intend to keep it that way. The same goes for education, public housing, public transport and other public services.

So where will the money come from some ask? Well, we say cut Trident, stop illegal wars and tax the rich. Bankers bonuses and the failure of large companies to pay tax in the UK will more than cover this. The budget deficit is not the issue. The inequalities in income and wealth is. But then the bankers and their friends always put their class first and others last.

Worthing Solidarity Network is committed to campaigning with the local community, users groups, local health workers and unions to defend and keep open all NHS facilities in the area.
