CPGB-ML member Dr Ranjeet speaks at the Balham (Lambeth and SW London) meeting of Keep Our NHS Public on the eve of the 6-7 April junior doctors strike.
The meeting was well attended and spirited with a lively Q&A session from the floor, and contributions from Dr Youssef El-Gingihy, East End GP and author of the influential book How to Dismantle the NHS in Ten Easy Steps and John Lister, health journalist and co-founder of Health Campaigns Together and Keep Our NHS Public.
The three speeches together gave an excellent summary of the state of the NHS and the conspiracy to privatise the provision of healthcare in Britain, which is also beautifully and succinctly explained in the CPGB-ML leaflet Save our NHS!

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt is part of the problem, but the Tory, Labour and LibDem parties have all played their part in planning, aiding and abetting the give-away of the NHS.
Private health companies are literally making a killing. Richard Branson is now running the largest GP practice in England, with 3.5 million patients.
Join us in fighting to save the NHS and reverse the capitalists’ concerted attempts to rob us of our healthcare as part of their plan to bail themselves out of the capitalist economic crisis.
