I've just signed a petition to doctors in charge of NHS services in my local area asking them to protect our NHS.
Can you add your name? Just enter your postcode to bring up the petition for your area.
The government’s plans to privatise and fragment our NHS are starting to take shape across England.
Local doctors are getting together to form “Clinical Commissioning Groups” or “CCGs”. These groups will have to make big decisions about how NHS money is spent locally, and what health services will be available to us.
CCGs will be under pressure from the government to do their dirty work - to cut services and hand out contracts to private companies. But they also have a legal obligation to pay attention to local patients, and many doctors on the CCGs were against the government's plans from the start.
I’ve signed the petition for our area to make sure they hear from local patients. Can you?
It's later than you think
