Your NHS Needs You: Comedy night on July 12 in London

Your NHS Needs You’ is a campaign that DiEM25 has been proudly supporting since its inception and, now, a comedy night is being hosted on July 12 in London in order to raise funds for the cause, which is to fight against the institution’s privatisation.

Some of the biggest stars in comedy including Jen Brister (MC), Frankie Boyle, Jo Brand, Marcus Brigstocke, Kerry Godliman, Markus Birdman, Rosie Jones, Malinda Mukuma and Michael Rosen are coming together for a brilliant night of entertainment to raise money for Your NHS Needs You.

Your NHS Needs You

While generations of us have been lovingly patched up by our NHS, and proud to fund it with our taxes, successive UK governments have been quietly privatising this cherished institution. Decades of academic research, and the brave campaigning of doctors and nurses, has exposed how this privatisation plot smuggled in private providers and US corporations while selling off NHS land and buildings.

Now, public health experts are sounding the alarm that the current Health and Care Bill is likely to be the nail in the coffin for our public health service. They are warning that the Bill will pave the way for the English NHS to be replaced by the profit-driven American system, in which private health providers are incentivised to cut and deny care to increase profits.
