Sell-off: The Privatisation of the NHS
April 29, 2015.11:00 am-10:00 pmFree
Sell Off – Your NHS is being privatised, sold off, and given away. Find out how. And what you can do about it. This 1 hour long documentary looks at the back-door privatisation of the NHS, from A&E to Ambulance services.
“Corporate interests rather than patient care is driving reform in today’s NHS and will divert money away from YOU. And the media are failing to tell you this.
This film is radical. With over a dozen NHS insiders as my witnesses, I tell the alarming story of how the health service as we know it has been quietly abolished. Almost without our noticing, it’s been replaced by a system modelled on the US in which care is delivered by profit-maximising companies that charge patients for treatment which is anyway to be restricted and reduced. One medical reporter the filmmaker knows claims that health reporting today is so poor because few journalists have real sources inside the NHS. Well, this film has a riot of medical sources – including one professor, two consultant radiologists, a cancer expert, a public interest lawyer, and several outspoken GPs. What they all say will be shocking, unusual and brave. Our doctors really strike back in this one.”
Screenings at 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 7pm. The film lasts 60 minutes. The 7pm screening will be followed by a Q&A with Dr Bob Gill (subject to confirmation.
