Stop Lansley - Save the NHS

The "pause" in progressing the Lansley bill to end the National Health Service will only be a pause for breath unless we step up campaigning to defend the NHS (http://www.unison.org.uk/ournhs/).



The LRC website today has some useful links to campaign resources (http://l-r-c.org.uk/news/story/save-the-nhs-kill-lansleys-bill/), including details of a demonstration after work on Tuesday 17 May in Central London(http://l-r-c.org.uk/events/detail/kill-lansleys-bill-march-to-save-the-nhs/).



Those of us who are union activists in other sectors need, somehow, to find time from fighting job losses to motivate and mobilise our members to defend the NHS - we also need the broadest unity in this cause, which must (for those of us with Labour Councils) mean taking time out from arguing with Labour employers about cuts and privatisation in order to stand side by side with them to save our health service.
