Sign our letter to end the gag on NHS staff

Their voices must be heard in this election


NHS staff are being gagged.

Across the country, health service workers are being sent letters saying they must not take part in ‘debates, activities and events that may be politically controversial’.

The NHS has been ravaged by brutal Conservative cuts since 2010, with many staff saying the service is close to breaking point as they themselves suffer a decade of real terms pay cut.

Banning those very workers from speaking out over Tory cuts amounts to gagging free speech.
 


The NHS is at risk of being sold out further as Boris Johnson prepares to offer it up on a plate to Donald Trump and fails to rule out further privatisation.

These workers must have their voices heard. Please help by adding your name.

Sign our open letter to NHS Chief Executive Simon Stevens and help give NHS workers their voices back.

Dear Simon Stevens,

I'm writing as someone who cares deeply about the NHS.

I'm worried that staff working in the NHS are being stopped from talking about their real life experiences in the run up to the General Election

Did you see the recent press coverage?

I keep hearing about increasing waiting times, cuts to funding and staffing problems. And there's likely to be another winter crisis on the way.

It's already worrying me that the NHS might be on the table during any Tory trade negotiations with Donald Trump. I just want to know, truthfully, what NHS workers on the front line think.

If you cared about the NHS too, you'd lift this gag and give workers their voice.
