Green trade unionists back new campaign for NHS funding

Green Party trade unionists have backed SOS NHS, a new campaign effort pushing for short- and long-term funding for the NHS.

The campaign, launched by Keep Our NHS Public at an online rally on Wednesday 19th January, has set its sights on three key demands: emergency funding to address short-term funding gaps; long-term investment in a publicly-run health service; a pay rise for NHS workers.

SOS NHS has a wide range of backers, from unions including the GMB, PCS, NEU and NASUWT to medical campaign groups including MedAct and NHS Workers Say NO!.

At the rally Green Party Deputy Leader Amelia Womack told supporters: “The quality of your care should not depend on the depth of your pocket. We will keep fighting for the basic principles of the NHS and social care.!
