We are an independent group of researchers and journalists that work to ensure that we all have fair access to high-quality healthcare. We support our NHS and its staff, through evidenced-based campaigns and policy discussions

We are a voluntary organisation and not allied to any political party.

Our funding comes from supporters who work as health professionals and the general public, from grant-making trusts and the trade unions.

We have been campaigning for fair and universal access to healthcare, and in support of the NHS since 1989.



We collect evidence about what is happening to the NHS, through research and by talking to the public and NHS staff.

We communicate the evidence through the media, by writing articles, designing websites and stimulating community discussions

We create campaigns to engage the public in improving access to healthcare or changing the way that it is organised.

It also very important for us to work with local communities. Often this is where services can be protected or improved, through local intervention. We help local people build community campaigns to influence the future of their NHS.

Through these activities, we aim to ensure that the NHS is there to care for us and the generations to come.



Everyone in our society should have access to high-quality healthcare, regardless of their financial means.

The NHS should always offer a broad range of care and should reach patients throughout the country. We believe this is possible despite modern pressures and expectations.

The public shares the cost of the NHS through the tax system, this is the fairest and most efficient way. We all have a stake in the NHS and should, therefore, have a say in how it works.

As a society, we should recognise the evidence about the strengths of the NHS and preserve them. For this reason, the NHS should be a publicly driven service and those providing NHS care must put patient care ahead of financial gain.
