Are you a regular, occasional or past NHS service user?

  • Do you know someone who uses NHS services?
  • Are you a current, previous or future NHS employee?

    IN APRIL 2013 THE NHS CHANGED, WITH SERVICES EXPOSED TO TAKE OVER BY THE PRIVATE SECTOR.  NOW THE WHOLE SERVICE IS JUDDERING WITH THE STRAIN OF FLATLINE SPENDING, INCREASING DEMAND AND REFORMS WHICH EVEN THE TORIES ADMIT HAVE BEEN THEIR BIGGEST MISTAKE.

       JOIN THE CAMPAIGN TO SAVE THE NHS.

The Coalition Government which says it cares about the NHS clearly has not seemed to care much about its staff.  Over the last year NHS staff have been struggling to get implementation of the pay award recommended by the independent review body.  It took the threat of a 12 hour strike and the impending general election to persuade Jeremy Hunt to make an offer with just enough for unions to consult their members.  If the Tories get in we can expect conditions to deteriorate dramatically and they will put further restrictions on strike action as well.

SHEFFIELD SAVE OUR NHS

imag0335We are a grassroots movement originating out of the first 38 degrees Save Our NHS campaign in January 2011.  We comprise people from all walks of life and across the political parties who are, or will be affected by the government's austerity measures of spending cuts to NHS Services across England. We strongly oppose the creeping privatisation of the NHS by successive governments and campaigned actively against the Health and Social Care Bill.

CCGprotestSSONHS061212
We are based in Sheffield and will continue to protest against the 2012 NHS reforms and to take action against NHS cuts for this area. We actively invite both individuals and other groups based in other locations around England with similar aims to get involved. It's now or never: soon there may not be an NHS to save.

We are a campaigning group but we also monitor local NHS developments, questioning local NHS organisations including Sheffield CCG and feeding into Sheffield Healthwatch as appropriate.  Recently we have challenged the Council's intention to put the dementia services at Hurlfield View, currently run by Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Trust, out to competitive tender.
    
Privatisation = Profit  NOT Good Patient Care
 

Check out the Sheffield NHS News page via the link on the upper left column to find details of local NHS consultation and engagement activities. These help the public to find out what is going on locally and can be opportunities to put the case against competition as the basis for selecting healthcare providers.

We were proud to welcome the 999 Call for the NHS march from Jarrow to London organised by the Darlington Mums. See the page menu link on the left for our dedicated page

We joined the TUC Lobby of the Conservative Party Conference on 29th September 2013 as part of a strong turnout from Sheffield comitted to saving the NHS from Tory plans.  But if lobbying / gagging bill is now likely to restrict such events from September 2014. 

In January 2013 we launched a campaign to save the Hallamshire Minor Injuries Unit which is under review.
 We only needed a few shortish signature gathering sessions in the city centre, at Hunters Bar and in Broomhill to collect more than 1000 signatures which have now been presented to Nick Clegg MP and Paul Blomfield MP. A&E at Northern General is under such pressure that the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust that the MIU has finally been re-included in local publicity and the NHS is currently saying there are no plans to close it.
