When 1,200 people marched on the streets of Bristol on 1st December, it was not only an act of self defence and solidarity. Health workers and supporters of a national health service know that to defend national terms and conditions is also to defend our NHS from easy pickings for the vultures of privatisation.
As a further step in the campaign to defend our NHS, the UNITE branch for health sector workers in Bristol, Bath and Weston-super-Mare is hosting a public meeting for all concerned about the future of our NHS. As well as Rachel Maskell, the UNITE national officer for health, there are two other speakers who have been persistent campaigners for our NHS. Gill George of the national lay committee for health has always been much appreciated as a powerful speaker when she has spoken at Keep OUR NHS Public meetings in Bristol. Ron Singer, GP, was vociferous about the dangers of the government's Health and Social Care Bill before it was enacted (and can be viewed explaining the implications on the UNITE website).
The Keep Our NHS Public postcards for people to give their GPs will be abundantly available at the public meeting and there will plenty of opportunity for speakers from the floor to put forward ideas for local campaigning.
