Caroline Lucas told OurNHS today, “Our fragmented, marketised NHS is in crisis.  This latest failure highlights the urgent need for a change in direction.  We need to return the NHS to its founding principles and reverse the creeping marketisation of the last 25 years.  That’s why I’m calling for MPs from across the political spectrum to be part of saving our health service by supporting my NHS Reinstatement Bill.”

Deborah Harrington, spokesperson for the National Health Action Party also weighed in with support for the bill, saying:

“It took a series of legislative changes to get us where we are today, on the brink of losing a precious and vital service available to us all.  We need legislation to restore it to health and end these daily reports of financial ‘failure’.  We need the NHS Bill tabled by Caroline Lucas.”
