Branch Secretary :

Stop STP's Don't slash trash & privatise our NHS


Demonstrate on 4th March 2017 and protest now


The NHS faces another wave of drastic cuts, privatisation and reorganisation. This is going to have a massive impact on patients and staff alike. We must fight to STOP them.


Our branch has agreed to support the national demonstration in support of the NHS on Saturday 4th March in London, and now Unite nationally is backing the march - put it in your diary!


The National Health Service is at breaking point.

On the backdrop of continued cuts and closures, private companies seek to gain even more of a foothold within the NHS.

Continued pay restraint has since the value of NHS staff salaries reduce by 14% since 2010 and there are now 25,000 nursing and 3,500 midwifery vacancies in NHS England alone.

Theresa May’s demands for yet more austerity in the NHS represent a real risk to the safety of patients and the service. The Government's latest plans for Sustainability and Transformation Plans are in reality just a smokescreen for further cuts and it's latest instrument of privatisation.

The NHS is the single greatest achievement of working class people in Britain. We cannot allow it to be undermined and ultimately destroyed. We must march together, sending a clear message to the government; “the NHS will last as long as there are folk with the faith to fight for it.”
