NHS BIRTHDAY – JULY 3RD – COME AND JOIN US
Sat 3 Jul @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
HAFSON is celebrating – and protesting – with other health campaigners across England on Saturday 3rd July, 2021. Our NHS turn 73 on July 5th.
We will be holding a street event outside the Bush Theatre, Uxbridge Rd, from 11am – 1pm. We will be leafleting at this time drawing attention to
- The need for safety for patients and protection for staff following 150,000 covid deaths – including over 850 healthcare worker deaths; and huge delays in elective and emergency care;
- The need for staff to be paid properly when the NHS has more than 100,000 vacancies. A 1% pay rise is an insult.
- The need to end privatisation in our NHS, instead of doling out contracts to the like of Serco’s test and trace programme (a wasted £37bn) and developments like selling of GP practices to multinationals such as Centene.
At 1pm we will be heading off to Hammersmith Park, W12 (the BBC Park as it is locally known!) – a short stroll from Bush Theatre – for a celebratory Picnic. Bring your own picnic lunch, drinks etc.
