Next week, Cameron’s Health Bill will go back before the House of Lords for its Report Stage.
Over recent months, the opposition to the Health and Social Care Bill has been building. More and more patients, members of the public and health professionals have spoken out about the damage they fear the Bill will do to the NHS we all love so much.
Supporters of the NHS in the House of Lords are going to put forward crucial amendments to try and reduce the damage that this Bill will do to our health service. We’ll be in touch with you again over the coming weeks to ask you to take action to contact those Peers who can sway the votes.
But whatever amendments the House of Lords passes, and whatever concessions Cameron is forced to make, the fact remains that this Health Bill is a huge threat to our NHS.
That’s why today, I am emailing to ask you to take 2 minutes to sign this government e-petition, calling on Cameron’s government to drop the Health and Social Care Bill:
Our NHS was founded on the principle that healthcare should be available to everybody, regardless of ability to pay.
This Health Bill undermines that founding principle, and risks putting private profit before patient care. Those who can afford to pay for treatment will be able to jump the queue, whilst everybody else will be forced to the back of an ever-growing waiting list.
Add your name now to the growing call for Cameron’s government to drop this unpopular and dangerous Health Bill:
This Bill is opposed by those who work in our NHS, and those who use it. Make sure Cameron knows that you oppose it too.
