Are you confused by messages about the NHS being sold off?
Would you like to understand the situation and how it will affect you?
Head to Quay Arts in Newport tonight (Thursday) and all will be explained at a screening of ‘Sell Off: the abolition of your NHS’ by documentary-maker, Peter Bach.
Island services in jeopardy
Christine Lightbody from the IoW Save OUR NHS Facebook Group says,
“NHS services across the country are in jeopardy and the Isle of Wight will not be immune from the consequences of a deliberate, long-term plan by government ministers and advisors to SELL OFF our beloved NHS to the private sector.
“This film gives a fascinating and worrying insight into the current situation from the perspective of doctors, nurses and senior health care professionals. The government’s Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) are the latest attempt to cut, close and privatise our services.
“Our NHS was 69 years old this year. After watching this film you will wonder whether she will reach her 70th birthday.”
Where and when
The screening takes place at Quay Arts on Thursday 16th November at 7pm.
It is free to attend, but you need to register for tickets – which you can do on EventBrite.
