20 November 2019
Next week - November 25th - December 2nd is our NHS week of action. We'll be kicking it off with a stunt in Parliament Square on Monday at midday - join us if you can!
Our NHS is at risk from a Tory-Trump trade deal, and this is one of the biggest issues of this election.
Have your election candidates signed our pledge to get the NHS off the table by ending privatisation? Do your fellow voters know which candidates have committed to protecting the NHS?
We need you to make this happen - can you take half an hour to take some photos with your election candidates outside your nearest hospital?
