OurNHS
10 December 2013

OurNHS is primarily a publishing project but we work closely with a wide array of NHS campaign groups - both national and local - to support their work with high quality information, stories and research, and help co-ordinate action. 

Campaign aims that OurNHS is working to support include:

Stop the Hospital Closure Clause - Currently at Committee stage in Commons, due to be heard 28/30 January 2014 before returning to Commons for final votes.

Stop NHS cuts and closures

Stop NHS privatisation

Restore the Secretary of State's duty to secure a comprehensive health service in England

Say no to NHS charges and insurance

Stop the sell off of NHS assets and buildings

Sort out the mess that is Foundation Trusts 

Make sure international trade treaties don't affect our health services

Keep the NHS safe and properly staffed

Be properly informed about medical data and confidentiality.

Because OurNHS is campaigning to change legislation we are not eligible for charitable funding, so we rely on donations from our readers. Please consider donating today to help keep us going.

 

How is the British police crackdown bill a threat to democracy?

The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill creates new stop-and-search powers, allows the police to put more conditions on protests, and threatens Gypsy and Traveller rights to roam.

It's been met with mass protests from Bristol to Belfast. Is this bill a threat to our human rights – and is there any stopping it now?
