Defend our NHS York

On Friday 12 February 2016 a meeting jointly organised by Defend Our NHS York and York People’s Assembly entitled “NHS Privatisation – this is the Big one!” was held at the Priory Street Centre in York. The speakers were introduced to the full house of over a hundred people by DoNHSY’s own Anne Leonard.

The Member of Parliament for York Central Rachael Maskell MP spoke of NHS miracles happening every minute, of every hour, of every day and year and produced with statistics that confirmed this, including it being the fourth largest employer in the world. Her mention of the Junior Doctors contact dispute brought a round of applause from the audience. She also spoke of economic inequality leading to health inequality and the need to take back control of the NHS, along with other public services, into public hands to provide a good life for everyone.
