HOW TO DISMANTLE THE NHS - YOUSSEF EL-GINGIHY
Wednesday 29th July, 730pm
Dr Youssef El-Gingihy - a GP -
tells the story of how the NHS has been gradually converted into a
market-based healthcare system over the past 25 years. This process is
accelerating under the Coalition government and the very existence of a
National Health Service is in danger. He fears that there will not be an
NHS as our generation grows old and certainly not for our children.
Yet the British public remains largely unaware of this and the media, with few exceptions, have failed in their duty to inform them. The NHS is being broken up into an universal insurance system based on the American model. This book matters to all who use the NHS or are concerned by the privatisation of public services and the dismantling of equitable healthcare and welfare.
