Save our NHS day: Saturday 28th February
By Rachel Oliver
At 11am on Saturday 28th February, thousands of 38 Degrees members are coming together in town centres across England to stand up for our NHS.
This government has pushed our NHS to breaking point: selling parts off to private companies and cutting funding in important areas.
NHS doctors and experts over the last few weeks have made one thing clear: if we want an NHS after May’s general election, we need to be campaigning now. Together, we can run a huge campaign over the next two months – with a simple message to MP candidates everywhere: ‘Save our NHS’.
In two weeks’ time, 38 Degrees members are meeting on high streets to gather thousands of signatures on local ‘Save our NHS’ petitions. We’ll remind people that our NHS is a precious, life-saving service – and ask them to join us in saying no to cuts and privatisation.
Once you RSVP you’ll be able to chat to other 38 Degrees members in your local area, and talk about your plans for the day. You’ll also be sent a parcel with everything you need to make the day a success – petition sheets, leaflets and more!
Can you come along and help gather signatures for your local ‘Save our NHS’ petition? Click here to RSVP and register for your pack.
As the election draws near, your local petition will be delivered to each and every candidate who wants to win our votes. Together we can make sure every politician in every constituency knows that if they intend to run down or sell off our health service, they’ve got a fight on their hands.
We need the NHS at our best and worst moments in life. It belongs to all of us and we’re all proud of it. Helping get more signatures on the petition in your area would be a massive boost to our nationwide push to protect our NHS for future generations.
Please RSVP today, so 38 Degrees members in your area can collect as many signatures as possible:
