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. So after 35 years of separate activity, we want to thank all those who have continued to support us, but we will no longer be seeking separate affiliations or donations to LHE in 2019.
Instead we urge LHE's remaining loyal supporters to affiliate and donate to HCT at www.healthcampaignstogether.com.
