MATTERSmeets 0.3: ‘SELL-OFF’, the abolition of our NHS

MATTERSMEETS: Join us for pre-election chaired meetings at deepspaceworks community art centre next on Monday 9th March 2015 at 7pm.

THESE ARE MEETINGS TO FIND OUT WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO US & HOW WE CAN BEGIN TO ADDRESS THESE & ANY OTHER MATTERS THAT WILL INEVITABLY COME UP BEFORE THE VOTE

At this meeting we will be screening ‘SELL-OFF’, a film made about the abolition of the NHS by Peter Bach.

‘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.’

Peter BachThis film is radical. With over a dozen NHS insiders as my witnesses, I tell the alarming story of how the health service as we know it has been quietly abolished. Almost without our noticing, it’s been replaced by a system modelled on the US in which care is delivered by profit-maximising companies that charge patients for treatment which is anyway to be restricted and reduced. One medical reporter the filmmaker knows claims that health reporting today is so poor because few journalists have real sources inside the NHS. Well, this film has a riot of medical sources – including one professor, two consultant radiologists, a cancer expert, a public interest lawyer, and several outspoken GPs. What they all say will be shocking, unusual and brave. Our doctors really strike back in this one.”

    • Absolutely, Jennie. This issue effects every single one of us in the UK & sadly more than we know, which is why it’s good to get the chance to watch films like SELL-OFF.

    Dear Peter, I have only just received this email via a friend, but would like to inform you that we are an active group of 38 Degrees Gloucestershire and campaign on NHS issues.

    Are you still active and what apart from the film do you do?

    I am also a member of positive money in Cheltenham and Gloucester who’s aim is to inform people how money is created and that we do have infinite amounts of money for our public services, and when politicians tell us we are broke, they are actually lying to us.

    Please write back and inform us what you would like to do in the future and whether we can help in any way.

    Thank you for your actions so far, look forward to hearing from you,

    Mervyn Hyde
