The House of Lords can protect our NHS from trade deals.

Boris Johnson has betrayed the British people. He promised to "take back control" and "keep the NHS off the table", but over 300 of his MPs have voted against parliamentary scrutiny and NHS protection in the Trade Bill debate.

We have one last chance at stopping Donald Trump and his healthcare cronies. We need the House of Lords to step up now and protect our NHS.Tell the house of lords to protect our NHS from Trade DEals

Tell your council leader we want safe track and trace!

Matt Hancock handed track and trace to private companies like Serco for big money, but locally led public health teams are doing most of the contact tracing - with a fraction of the funds.

Serco and Sitel are failing on so many fronts, BUT their contracts end on August 23rd. YOU can help get the money currently being wasted on private companies' failings diverted to locally led track and trace.

We have TWO weeks. Tell your council leader that you support their local work to keep communities safe, and ask them to write to Matt Hancock and Carolyn Wilkins to call for safe, publicly led contact tracing.

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.

Protect the NHS from trade deals

The coronavirus crisis shows how important our NHS is. 

But even now, the government is trying to sneak through legislation which gives no protection for our NHS from trade deals.

Tell Boris Johnson to stick to his promise to keep our NHS off the table

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

Fund local public health teams to do contact tracing, scrap Serco

Leicester going back into lockdown shows that we are still at huge risk, and that the only way to get out of lockdown safely is with an effective, integrated test, track and trace programme.

The public, and top scientists agree. Now it's time for government to listen. 

Tell Matt Hancock to listen to what the public want
