openDemocracy does fiercely independent journalism. We don't have corporate owners, we don't edit our coverage to please advertisers, we don't post videos of cats.
This winter we're launching an urgent appeal for our specialist, campaigning OurNHS project. On very low running costs, OurNHS regularly breaks the stories the mainstream media miss about the crisis faced by England’s National Health Service, exposing sneaky moves towards charging for vital health services, withdrawing services, hospital sell-offs and the shocking failures of privatisation. But now it needs to your help to continue. Please donate using the tools below and spread the word.
