Clive Efford today launched a petition to put People Not Profits back at the Heart of our Healthcare System
The online petition is to show your support for Clive Efford’s Private Members Bill on 21 November to save our NHS before it’s too late.
Clive Efford MP says,
“Please sign our petition to show your support for the NHS before it’s too late.
This Tory-led government has privatised our NHS in a way no-one wanted and no-one voted for.
Please sign our online petition today to show your local MP that they must now stand up for the NHS and halt its rapid privatisation before it’s too late. We must show those in power that our NHS must always be about people not profits.”
Andy Burnham, Shadow Health Minister in his Choice on the NHS speech today said,
“we … know that the threat to the NHS is real – and that it can’t wait for an Election.
That is why Labour is supporting a Private Member’s Bill – promoted by Clive Efford MP – to repeal the most noxious elements of the Cameron Health Act in this Parliament.
As part of Labour’s summer campaign on the NHS, we will work to build support behind this.
Before they face the public next year, Conservative and Lib Dem MPs have a chance to correct their mistake.”
Clive’s Bill will reverse Cameron’s devastating privatisation of our NHS by:
- Restoring the central duty on the Secretary of State to provide National Health Services
- Remove Cameron’s dangerous competition requirements
- Curb the ability of NHS hospitals to provide private services
- Remove the additional duties awarded to Monitor so there is no longer any conflict of interest
- Repeal the S.75 competition regulations
Clive Efford says “A Labour Government will halt the privatisation of our NHS and put people not profits back at the heart of our health service.”
