Early this morning I put up a piece about how my local health centre in Whitchurch, Bristol, has fallen victim to NHS cuts, and has written to their patients explaining that they are having to cut back on services.
This is, scandalously, not an unfortunate accident, and it has nothing to do with the people running the health centre. It is the result of Cameron and co.’s campaign to privatise the NHS, a programme that has been carrying on since the days of Maggie Thatcher by successive right-wing administrations, including Blair and Brown, or as they should be regarded, Smarmy and Grumpy.
Michelle, another of the great commenters on this blog, posted up this piece in response to it, discussing an exhibition against the NHS’ privatisation she attended in Stroud, and giving links and information to people and organisations campaigning against it.
Here’s her post.
Really important post Beastie, yesterday…
