|Shadow Health Secretary Jonathon Ashworth will be speaking at the event on Wednesday in support of the protest, with Labour set to oppose the Bill. He says:
"This top down reorganisation allows the private sector a direct say in the design and delivery of local health care. After a year in which cronyism and outsourcing has seen billions wasted on duff PPE and failing contact tracing, patients and staff know this is the last thing the NHS needs. Labour will be fighting NHS privatisation and urging MPs to vote against this bill."
Protect the NHS: Scrap the health and care bill
We have to stop the proposed health and care bill passing through parliament right now before it damages the NHS we know and love.
The new Bill will mean the handing out of NHS contracts to private companies with friends in the government. We have seen this happening during the pandemic and itís been a disaster. For example, £37 billion was wasted on a Ďtest and traceí service that simply didnít work.
