“Used By Us, Owned By Us, Loved By Us. Now The NHS Can Only Be Saved By Us.”
The People’s March for the NHS, set up by a group of Mums outraged by the attacks and moves to privatise our NHS, began on Saturday 16th August, and will continue for 300 miles across 23 towns and cities all the way to Parliament.
The march is inspired by the Jarrow Crusade which marched against unemployment and extreme poverty in the North East of England during the Great Depression.

“Support for the NHS is growing day by day. We need our NHS so it’s time to join the thousands already campaigning together to keep it.
