First and foremost: Thank you. On March 4th this year you were part of the biggest-ever national demonstration in support of #ourNHS, and it was absolutely incredible.
Now we need your help again.
We would like to invite you to be involved in the biggest-ever national NHS Campaigners' Conference to broaden and strengthen our networks up and down the country.
It will be in London in Hammersmith Town Hall, W6 9LE. Saturday 4th November 11am – 4.30pm. The doors will be open for stalls, coffee and registration from 10am, to ensure a prompt start.
The broad themes and demands of the conference will be the same as those that galvanised hundreds of thousands at #ourNHS demo:
- No Cuts or Closures
- No Privatisation
- Fair Pay for NHS staff
We have an exciting platform of speakers confirmed from leading trade unions and councillors to local campaigners and life-long activists, including:
- Dr Chaand Nagpaul, Chair of BMA
- Sara Gorton, head of Unison health
- Ken Loach, BAFTA award winning film director
- Julian Bell and Steven Cowan, Council Leaders who have rejected STPs in London
But the most important contributions will come from you and your delegates. It is absolutely essential that we hear from you and we urge you to come and share your experiences, ideas, strategies and vision with like-minded others at this conference to build pressure against a collapsing Government. We expect this to be an important and influential turning point for #ourNHS.
Following introductory speakers, the format of the day will be structured into 2 halves:
1. Workshops on key campaigning issues identified by our affiliates.
2. Geographical networking and alliance building.
This will then be closed by a PLENARY SESSION.
A finalised agenda will be published on our website: www.healthcampaignstogether.com and a detailed leaflet for the event which we encourage you to print and share is available for download or in printed form.
Early bird registration closes Wed Nov 1st

Lunch will be provided for all PRE-BOOKED delegates
