Stop Sajid Javid's private takeover of our NHS

The government is getting credit in the media for ‘taking back control’ of our NHS. In reality, Boris Johnson and new Health Secretary Sajid Javid’s plans would mean more American-style privatisation, not less! (1)

Dear Boris Johnson and Sajid Javid, don’t give private companies a bigger role in our NHS. 

 We call on you to get private companies out of our health service so the NHS can get on with the job of caring for people in this pandemic.

Stop the sell-off of 49 GP practices

Centene Corporation, an American health insurance giant, has just taken over 49 NHS GP surgeries and practices.

Your GP surgery could be next - wherever you live. 

Sign the petition and oppose the sell-off of our GP surgeries to Centene or any other corporation.

Save lives - scrap Serco

Contact tracing is vital if we’re going to get out of lockdown safely, hug our loved ones again and save lives.

But instead of putting local public health experts in charge, health secretary Matt Hancock has handed over responsibility to Serco - a private outsourcing company that has already put lives at risk.

Tell Matt Hancock to end Serco's role in contact tracing

Don't let Murdoch murder our BBC

Dominic Cummings has always wanted to dismantle our BBC, and Rupert Murdoch's global media empire would benefit if he gets his way.

Instead of letting the BBC be murdered by Murdoch, we want to make it BETTER - fully independent of government, representative, diverse and accountable to us, the people.

Sign now to defend our BBC - and make it better.

Time to take back our trains

With the rail industry in crisis, the government could bring the whole railway into public ownership.

Or they could continue to bail-out failed private rail companies indefinitely, funnelling public money into private profits.

Email Rishi Sunak and Grant Shapps to tell them it's time to take back our trains
