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

CCGprotestSSONHS061212We 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 and feeding into Sheffield Healthwatch as appropriate.
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.
