Health Campaigns Together
Health Campaigns Together is not just another health campaign.
It is an initiative to enable many of the campaigns that have been formed to liaise together, share experiences and lessons, and where possible work together on issues of common concern.
Our aim is not to recruit individuals, who are encouraged to join one of our supporting campaigns, or other local campaigns and get them to link up with us. So you cannot join HCT as an individual (although donations from individuals who support our objective are very welcome).
We also welcome affiliation from trade union branches (NHS and non-NHS), and political parties opposed to NHS cuts and privatisation.
Individuals who want to help are welcome to send us donations to take forward the work, but are also encouraged join one or more of the many NHS campaigns, a growing number of which are represented on HCT.
On each side of this page we have links to those who have expressed an interest so far, and welcome links to other campaigns who wish to work with us.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
