Our NHS Pledge

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

As the NHS celebrates its 70th anniversary this July, Students for Global Health Glasgow wish to emphasise the founding principles of the NHS and commit to ensuring a future where universal healthcare is a right, not a privilege, for everyone. 

We, as future workers in the NHS, pledge to;

  • A publicly funded and publicly owned National Health Service
  • Available to everyone equally, free at the point of access
  • Service provision is based on clinical need, not ability to pay
  • Services not provided by commercial companies in the interest of shareholders and profit
  • A redistribution of funding to tackle the “inverse care law” of health provision
  • The repeal of Health and Social Care Act 2012 and the removal of the internal market within NHS England
  • Repeal all regulations which charge for NHS care and turn healthcare into immigration control

Please sign your name and role (student, nurse, doctor etc) and share if you agree with the above statements regarding our health service.
