St Helier campaign’s free screening of NHS Sell Off film, Nov 7

st-helier-hospitalKOSHH – the Keep Our St Helier Hospital campaign group – is staging a free screening and discussion this Friday, November 7, of Sell Off – The abolition of your NHS.

The film makers describe the documentary as “radical”, and say, “Corporate interests rather than patient care is driving reform in today’s NHS and will divert money away from you. And the media are failing to tell you this.” So this public screening represents a rare opportunity to judge the film and its claims for yourself.

The event is being staged at 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House, 10 Cedar Road, Sutton SM2 5DA, with Dr Bob Gill, a GP who is featured in the film, being the main speaker at this free event.

Others involved in the film will also be in attendance, and audience participation will be encouraged.

KOSHH says, “The threats to St Helier Hospital and the NHS as a whole continue, as long as the privatisation agenda is forced through. We need your support to help safeguard our health service before it’s too late. Please come along to find out what we’re all up against, join the campaign, and help protect your family’s future health requirements.”

The closure of the A&E and maternity departments at St Helier, as has been proposed in the past, can only increase service demand on those provisions in Croydon and elsewhere across south London.

Space for film screening is limited, so please email to reserve your seat to
