Hampshire and IOW Defend the NHS Campaign Relaunch

11 May 2019 2:00pm–4:00pm

Edmund Kell Church, Southampton

The NHS is under attack, join the campaign to protect it and take on the local issues facing it such as:

• The development of STPs into are Integrated Care Systems which will make privatisation more likely.
• The threat to A & E services at Winchester Hospital – with implications for other areas which already face A & E pressures.

• Total chaos in plans for Health Services on the IOW

• Mounting waiting lists and staff shortages across the county

• The failure to develop a convincing workforce plan making it impossible to maintain existing services let alone deliver much of the promised “improvements” in the STP

• A social care crisis with inadequate staffing and funding

• The lack of accountability and public scrutiny of all of the above
