About the speakers

John Lister is a leading campaigner for keeping the NHS as a publicly-owned and publicly-operated NHS, and for maintaining funding at an acceptable level. He will outline the problems caused by the 2012 Health and Social Care Act, the continued attempts to privatise the NHS by stealth and the problems expected for the NHS if a trade deal is signed between the UK and the USA, particularly one under the guidance of Donald Trump.

James Skinner is the Access to Healthcare Campaigner at MedAct where he works on the Patients Not Passports campaign, organising alongside healthcare workers and patients to challenge the Hostile Environment in the NHS. Before that he was an A&E nurse, worked with Docs Not Cops, and was involved in community-led planning in North London. About his talk, James says: The introduction of immigration checks in hospitals and the expansion of charging across the NHS has led to drastic changes in the way we deliver care. Already we are seeing the impact of these policies on patients, from the Windrush generation being denied care because they did not have the right documents, to a couple denied access to the body of their baby because they could not pay a £10k bill.
