That's why we're calling on political candidates to take the Pledge for the NHS. Email your candidates here if you haven't already.

By taking the Pledge for the NHS candidates will be promising that if elected they will demand the new government, whatever party the government is from:

  •  Reinstate the Health Secretary’s legal duty to provide healthcare to all
  •  Give the NHS £40 billion more per year to catch up with equivalent European countries
  •  End outsourcing - bring services back in house as contracts end

Here's the full video. You can share it from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
