Save Our NHS

Just received this from 38 Degrees:

Dear Angus,

Today, GPs issued a stark warning about Andrew Lansley's NHS plans. They warned we're "moving headlong" towards a more US-style health system based on "an insurance-type model" [1]. That'd be the end of the NHS as we know it - we can't let that happen.

GPs, nurses and patients' groups all know that protecting our health service is a matter of life and death. [2] But they can't save the NHS on their own. Hundreds of thousands of us need to work together to push the politicians to rethink their dangerous plans.

Over 265,000 of us have signed the Save Our NHS petition so far. In the next few weeks, we need to deliver the petition to hundreds of MPs. The bigger the petition, the bigger the impact we will have when it lands on politicians' desks. Can you help us get past 300,000 signatures this week?

Please can you forward this email to your friends and ask them to sign the Save the NHS petition? They can sign by clicking here:

Our campaign has already helped push the government to announce a pause in their plans for the NHS. But there is a risk they will try to push ahead with minimal changes. We need to keep the pressure up, and that means keeping the petition growing.

We know that when we work together behind a growing petition we can transform things. When over 500,000 of us signed the Save Our Forests petition we forced the government to back away from their plans to privatise the forests. Now we need to convince our MPs that we won't let them press ahead with these dangerous plans.

Please forward this email to your friends now and ask them to sign the Save Our NHS petition at:

Thanks for getting involved,

Johnny, David, Hannah, Becky, Cian and the 38 Degrees team
