Save our NHS Petitions - 38 Degrees
The campaign group '38 Degrees' have formulated several petitions, addressed to MPs in specific areas, to allow people to show their disagreement over privatisation and funding issues. Over the past few years, NHS funding has been squeezed so much that services are suffering. This winter, hospitals up and down the country have declared "major incidents" because they're struggling to cope. And now most hospitals are warning that their budget for next year has " reached the point where patient care is at risk. Meanwhile, the government is letting profit-hungry companies take over more and more NHS services. At at a time of squeezed budgets, this is the last thing the NHS needs.
