Our NHS in Crisis: Public Forum
Public Forum with special guest speakers:
Dr Colin Hutchinson (Doctors for the NHS) Maurice Neville (Derbyshire Save Our NHS)
The NHS faces a chronic problem of cuts, privatisation and underfunding. Here in Derbyshire the government’s Sustainability and Transformation Plans have led to proposals to close down Community Hospital provision in Bolsover, Bakewell and Clay Cross. Now Jeremy Hunt is trying to push through his idea of Accountable Care Organsiations (ACOs), which campaigners believe will further open the door to US style privatised health care provision.
Our platform speakers bring a wide range of expertise and campaigning knowhow. Colin Hutchinson recently gave evidence to the House of Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee on ACOs. Councillor Maurice Neville is a leading figure in the campaign to save the Babbington Hospital in Belper.
