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.’
“This 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 Almost without our noticing, it’s been replaced by a system modelled on the US in which care is delivered by profit-maximising companies that charge patients for treatment which is anyway to be restricted and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.”
