The NHS Support Federation
We are an independent pressure group that campaigns to protect and improve the NHS, keeping it true to its founding principles.
We are a voluntary organisation, not allied to any political party and funded by supporters from the health professions and the general public. We have been campaigning in support of the NHS since 1989.
Fully Fund our NHSOur NHS faces the biggest financial crisis in a generation. Across the country, our NHS and social care services are facing financial crises as a result of an unprecedented squeeze on funding that is set to last until 2020 at the earliest. Despite the best efforts of NHS staff this is beginning to affect patient care. From waiting lists to A&E, from cancer treatment to ambulance call out times, things have got progressively worse over the last 5 years. Leaked evidence from the new NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plans hints that local closures and service rationing will result as the NHS struggles to find billions in savings imposed by the government’s funding squeeze. The NHS needs to change. We need a more joined up service for patients from GP surgeries to hospitals through to community and mental healthcare. But this cannot happen on the cheap. The NHS needs proper funding to enable it to meet the demands of our growing and changing population. And this is affordable. If we invested as much per head of population on our health services as France, Germany or the Netherlands, it would raise billions in additional funding that could make a genuine difference. Ask the Chancellor to fully fund our NHS.11,954 of 15,000 SignaturesCreated by NHS Support Federation
