Health Campaigns Together
Since autumn 2015 London Health Emergency has been proud to have played a leading role in launching a new, wider, more active campaign -- Health Campaigns Together. HCT has proved its ability to lead and organise demonstrations, conference and campaigns.

Instead we urge LHE's remaining loyal supporters to affiliate and donate to HCT at www.healthcampaignstogether.com.

30 years ago - the first moves to marketise the NHSAs Tories, LibDems and some misguided academics back away from calls for proper funding of the NHS through general taxation and once more regurgitate the tired old call for a "hypothecated tax" to pay for the NHS - "perhaps replacing National Insurance" - it's time to remember some of the crazy formulae dreamt up by Backwoods Tory MPs back in 1988 as Margaret Thatcher commenced her "review" of the NHS ...
