Election 2015: Manchester – What’s at stake for the NHS?  Thursday 5th March

Election 2015: Manchester – What’s at stake for the NHS?

Thurs 5 March | The Mechanics Institute, 103 Princes St, M1 6DD| 6:30pm | Free | Refreshments available

 

Our What’s at stake for the NHS? event will see the publication of a new Class election guide looking at the priorities needed to ensure a strong, resilient and sustainable healthcare system free at the point of need and showing where the parties stand on the NHS.

The NHS is set to be one of the biggest issues in the General Election, with the universal healthcare system at the heart of British society under assault from privatisation, fragmentation and underinvestment. The threat to our NHS has never been greater and this event will debate what is at stake in the General Election, looking at what the main parties are offering. 

Healthcare policy needs to be about much more than just short-term fixes – it needs to offer integrated health and social care and preventative action. The event will debate how we ensure that the founding principles of the NHS- a universal system, free at the point of need- are protected for future generations.

Speakers include:

 

Allyson Pollock, Professor of Public Health Research and Policy, Queen Mary University

Dr Kailash Chand, Deputy chair of the British Medical Association

Liz McInnes MP, Heywood and Middleton

Adam Flanders, Senior Cardiac Technician & Unite Rep

Steve Hart, Chair of Class
