The "pause" to allow the government to "listen" has turned into a six month delay for the Bill to be sent back to the committee stage in Parliament. This is by no means the death of the Bill and everything it entails, but it does give us more time to build the campaign against it.
This is an opportunity we cannot afford to miss. We need to press home our advantage and ensure the Bill is killed off and the government told in no uncertain terms that we will not let them - or anybody else - dismantle the NHS.
We are calling for coordinated action in defence of the NHS on July 9th, the Saturday after the anniversary of the NHS' founding on July 5th 1948. Be creative: visit your local MP, protest against profiteering healthcare companies, have a picnic outside a pro-Bill GP's surgery, march from or to a local hospital, shutdown a tax dodging company for the day.
