Every part of the NHS is at breaking point. The Government has the power to fix it.  Will you join us to demand that they #ReviveTheNHS this winter?

Outcomes

12,529 people signed the petition for this campaign and followed up with letters to their MPs. 

In Jeremy Hunt’s budget in early 2023 he addressed to of our recommendations – concerning energy bills and pension regulations.

In December 2022 we ran the #RevivetheNHS campaign as follows:

We’ve identified 5 short-term solutions to help bolster the NHS workforce and safeguard patients this winter. Now we’re waiting for the government to act. We recognise that there are many longer-term changes required to safeguard the future of the NHS but these 5 steps will help patients and staff survive what is already a winter emergency.  

Join us in standing up for NHS staff + patients and sign the petition to #ReviveTheNHS today.

We commissioned an artist, Vivienne Littley, to produce a beautiful and evocative #ReviveTheNHS campaign emblem.  The first 5,000 people who signed our petition helped to reveal it in less than 24 hours;  add your name now to see it too; then help us share it widely. There are things this government can do to #ReviveTheNHS this winter and we must push them into action.

Our 5-point plan to #ReviveTheNHS this winter:

– Protect NHS patients from the impact of the energy crisis – cover all additional costs to the NHS caused by the increase in energy bills and the cost of living crisis

– Strengthen staff mental health support – provide better mental health support to a workforce that has endured so much for nearly 3 years

– Remove locum fee caps and ringfence a new budget for NHS locum staff – Locum fee caps affect the ability to staff the NHS safely during periods of extreme staff shortages; they must be removed immediately 

– Cut red tape in the Home Office and allow NHS staff to start jobs quickly – urgently address the issue of visa delays to enable staff in the NHS to start the job that they came here to do; remove visa fees and indefinite leave to remain fees to recognise the value of workers on visas in the NHS

– Reform NHS pension tax regulations which are pushing doctors out of the workforce – Punitive pension rules are, in effect, making senior doctors pay to go to work
