Emergency protests February 3Health Campaigns Together and People’s Assembly have called for an Emergency Demonstration:
NHS in Crisis: Fix it Now!in London on Saturday February 3. This has been supported by UNISON and Unite.
We are also calling on affiliates around the country to organise events and protests on that day in response to the escalating winter crisis, which is already claiming lives.

Key campaign dates 2018Our affiliates meeting on December 2 decided to build support for THREE major days of activity in 2018. Since then the scale of the winter crisis and the barrage of media coverage has forced us to bring forward a planned day of action, so the timetable is now:
FEBRUARY 3: Emergency demonstration in London, coupled with regional action and demonstrations in response to Winter crisis (also supporting NHS unions’ pay claim).
MAY 12: National TUC demonstration on workers’ rights: we aim to build an NHS contingent.
JULY 7: The Saturday after the NHS 70th Birthday (July 5) – we aim to work with Peoples Assembly, health unions, Labour and other parties to build a massive show of support in a national event.
Details are being worked out and discussed: keep the dates, and watch this space!
