Save our NHS

Tony Olsson in Chambercombe

I just signed a petition to stop the government forcing doctors to privatise the NHS. Please can you sign it too?

A new fight for the future of our NHS has just begun. Jeremy Hunt is trying to use new powers, hidden within last year's controversial NHS laws, to force local GPs to privatise more health services.

We know how important the NHS is to all of British society. And we know that when private health companies move in, too often it doesn't end well for patients. One of the reasons so many people opposed the NHS law last year was because we were worried it would pave the way to this kind of enforced privatisation. Now we need to do all we can to stop that happening.

We've got a chance, because Jeremy Hunt is breaking specific promises given when the NHS laws were voted through last year. If we can generate enough public outcry - and put enough pressure on the politicians who clung to these promises last time round - we have a decent hope of stopping them.
