The government’s Health and Social Care Bill may spell the end of the NHS. Already big sections of the healthcare system are being put into private hands – Richard Branson’s Virgin Care has signed a contract to run eight community hospitals in Surrey.

Hospitals are being cut too – despite all David Cameron’s promises before the election. Wards are being closed and local A&E departments are under threat. And new rules means that more privative patients can be treated by NHS hospitals – NHS patients will be kicked to the back of the queue.

Join us to learn about the attack on our NHS locally – and how we can fight it.

Speaking:
Kevin O’Brien, Secretary of UNISON Epsom and St. Helier.
HOSTED BY KINGSTON TRADES COUNCIL
