Will you pledge to join our vigil for the NHS?

Soon, our MPs will debate the third reading of Andrew Lansley’s Health and Social Care Bill in the Commons. It’s a crucial step in the passage of any legislation, and a yes vote will move the controversial measures significantly closer to becoming law.

That evening, as our health service faces its biggest shake-up since its creation in 1948, people across the country will be showing their concern by lighting candles for the NHS, in their windows at home, or as part of local vigils.

Can we please call on you to join us?

The government is being tight lipped on the timings for this bill, recognising its unpopularity with most of the population. It could be called at any point over the summer, with only a short time for us to organise, so we need to be ready.

Please make a pledge to light a candle on the evening of the debate. Provide your email address to: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and we will send you an email with more information when the date is announced.

In every town in the UK, in every street, we’ll be showing our support at the NHS’ darkest hour.  Pledge now to stand vigil when the time comes.
