NHS 73rd Anniversary Day of Action

July 3

Dear HCT Affiliates,

Saturday 3 July, 2021

73 years ago, despite a war-ravaged economy, we created the world’s first universal health service: the NHS. Now as we battle the most serious pandemic in 100 years, with millions on waiting lists, the NHS is being thanked, applauded but starved of real resources. The truth is the NHS was struggling BEFORE the Covid pandemic, after years of government cuts and 100,000 vacant posts. Join us up and down the United Kingdom to demand:


We are now in the active planning stage for the Day of Action which has been called by Keep Our NHS Public, Health Campaigns Together, NHS Workers Say No and NHS Staff Voices.

We are calling on all local groups to start organising now for local activities on the day. The exact format of your activities will be up to local groups of course, but we want to ensure they are coordinated across the whole country. We have received support from all the health unions, and we are now writing to all the unions across the TUC for support and publicity.

The Pay Review Body will be making its findings public in June which will bring the whole issue of pay back into the media. We want to show maximum solidarity with NHS staff at this time as well as make sure, patient safety, privatisation and of course the government’s woeful handling of the COVID-19 pandemic are clearly in the public eye.
