We are a group of people in Leicester & Leicestershire. We are all local residents and patients of the NHS; some of us work in the health service but most of us do not.
The Campaign Against NHS Privatization (CANP) was formed in 2010, initially to campaign against the Coalition governments’ Health & Social Care Bill. The success of that legislation in passing through Parliament despite the outright opposition of many NHS staff, professional associations, patient groups and members of the public has convinced us that there is an ongoing need to uphold the foundation principles of the service.
We believe that health care should be available to all, free at the point of use, accessed on the basis of need alone and equally good wherever it is accessed; and that our health services should be planned, democratically determined and democratically accountable and increasingly sustainable from an environmental point of view. (see our NHS Charter)
