Say No to privatisation and section 75 of the health and social care act
When: Wednesday 24 April 2013, 12:00pm
Where: House of Lords London, SW1

The Section 75 Government of Health and Social Care Act regulations will force every CCG and GPs to open NHS to private competition and possible to lowest bidders. Health care must remain a public identity and FREE at point of Delivery! LORDS must not allow NHS to be privatised. THEY MUST SEND IT BACK TO THE COMMONS NOW. Lords must stand on the side of Common people! Lets us Demonstrate and show our resistance on 24th April 2013 at 12.00 opposite House of Lords.
