FUND THE NHS – NOT THE PRIVATE SECTOR – SIGN THE KONP PETITION
The UK Government is raiding up to £10 billion from NHS budgets to pay private clinics and hospitals to take NHS patients in England. In the wake of the covid pandemic, our national health service is still not able to treat many of the people who need care.There are thousands of closed hospital beds that could be reopened with adequate resources. The NHS needs MORE resources injected NOW.
Tell the government to leave the £10 billion in the NHS, and not give it to private hospitals:

STOP THE PRIVATISED TEST AND TRACE CHAOS
Privatised track and trace is a disaster that is costing lives.
It’s time to put local public health teams in charge of the whole system. They have the tools and the local knowledge they need to do this vital work before any second wave this winter. Hancock needs to scrap Serco and Sitels failed contracts now instead of renewing them. The government must give the £528 million allocated for these contract extension to local authorities and Public Health England teams instead.
to sign two petitions and for a straight-forward pro forma letter – it will take you three minutes, but could protect the NHS for a lifetime
At Newcastle Civic Centre (August 2020) and Serco HQ Newcastle (October 2020)
GOVERNMENTS RESPONSE TO COVID 19 IS A DISGRACE – SIGN AND CIRCULATE TWO PETITIONS
KONP: Six key demands from NHS staff
Despite the massive threat posed by the Coronavirus pandemic, the Governments response has been exceptionally poor. This is doubly alarming given that our NHS is working following a decade of under-funding, under-staffing, and undermining.
National KONP is hosting this petition which puts six key demands to the government. Please CLICK HERE to find out more, and to sign.
Covid Inquiry Now:
As information comes to light, it is clear that there were huge gaps in the country’s preparedness for COVID 19 including delays to locking down, inadequate supplies of PPE, policies of discharging into care homes and more. They have all been identified as having contributed to the level of the death toll. It’s heartwrenching to know that some of the deaths could have been prevented if only this had been handled better.
Despite this, the government continues to refer to its ‘apparent success’ and being ‘proud’ of its record.
