We've had some great news regarding the legal challenge against ACOs. JR4NHS have secured the concession from NHS England that there must be a national public consultation on ACOs, and no ACO contract will be signed until the consultation has taken place. This is great news as ACO plans are essentially a way of turning local NHS boards into insurance …

#PublicDuty Twitterstorm 2018

In January 2015, the National Health Action Party organised a mass-whistleblowing inspired by a tweet from then-leader Dr Clive Peedell.

Each STP has a tight budget enforced by NHS England, meaning service closures are inevitable. Clinical Commissioning Groups have so far been told to do whatever their STP tells them, else there will be no new funding. But now City & Hackney …

Make your voice heard before the Lords Committee publishes its conclusions. This is urgent and important. There is now serious discussion, yet again, of creating a Royal (or other) commission with cross-party support. You can read why we are opposed to any such move here.
