Sell Off (The Abolition of your NHS)

NHS Services in North Surrey and across the country are in jeopardy. The Shepperton Medical Practice has been struggling with NHS Property Services. The Blanche Heriot Unit at St Peter’s Hospital is under threat of closure. The ADHD children’s neurological service at Ashford Hospital is in the midst of a recommissioning process, with no guarantees that it will be available beyond September. And St Helier’s Hospital at Carshalton has been on the closure list for a few years now. These are all consequences of a deliberate, long-term plan by government ministers and advisors to SELL OFF our beloved NHS to the private sector. 
This film gives a fascinating insight into the current situation from the perspective of doctors, nurses and senior health care professionals. The government’s Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) are the latest attempt to cut, close and privatise our services. 
Our NHS is 69 years old this year. After watching this film you will wonder whether she will reach her 70th birthday. Aneurin Bevan, the founding father of the NHS said: 
“The NHS will last as long as there are folk left with faith to fight for it “
• A panel discussion with local and national health professionals will follow the film.
