NHS: Emergency Lords petition growing fast!
By 38 Degrees team
We’ve now got less than 24 hours until the crucial House of Lords vote that will decide the future of the NHS, and our emergency petition already has over 80,000 signatures.
Members of the House of Lords, led by Lord Owen, are voting on whether to give the Bill proper scrutiny and examine key issues like the Secretary of State’s duty to provide. Our petition is growing at an incredible speed – over 10,000 signatures per hour!
Here’s what members are saying:
“The NHS is like good health itself, you won’t miss it until it has gone. It is too important to let this happen.” – Jacqueline
“Too many experienced and respected health care professionals are worried about these changes for them to be adopted without closer scrutiny.” – Guy
“We’re depending on you to save the NHS” – Sue
