The 2012 Health and Social Care Act is a complete disaster for our NHS - particularly Section 75, which forces the NHS to let private companies compete to provide some services. Now, NHS England has recognised the harm that Section 75 has done, and are calling on the government to get rid of Section 75 as part of their ‘Long Term Plan’ for the NHS.
The Long Term Plan is the next step in dismantling our NHS, reducing care provision, and moving away from the original founding principles of universal healthcare, free at the point of use, and accessible to everyone.
NHS England are asking for your views - let's tell them that we don't just want to end Section 75. We want to end all NHS privatisation, and rebuild the NHS based on its founding principles.
