Tuesday 12th May

The Great NHS Heist documentary screening with Q&A
Venue: Facebook
Time: 6pm

Tickets: Free

The Great NHS Heist is an independent documentary exposing the covert destruction of the NHS. Produced by Dr Bob Gill, GP and NHS campaigner it interviews academics, NHS staff, activists and professionals to uncover the systematic tearing down of Britain’s most treasured institution.

The Coronavirus pandemic has put an unprecedented amount of strain on an already depleted NHS; from lack of PPE equipment to insufficient tests for staff. Protecting the staff and the future of the NHS is a national priority, but how can we expect our healthcare system to thrive when it’s being undercut by government and big business? How can we expect our doctors and nurses to be empowered to care for us when they’re underpaid, overworked and chronically stressed from being overstretched? Why is it that one of the world’s most successful public initiatives isn’t being given the proper investment it needs to care for the country?

The major force behind this is the quiet transformation of the NHS from a public health system designed to deliver efficient, affordable health care to one designed to maximise profit. This shift, led by global private health insurance giants, has been ignored by mainstream media– this documentary provides a compelling account of the best kept secret in recent British domestic politics.

Followed by a Q&A with the producer, Dr Bob Gill, a GP and NHS campaigner who has been working with the NHS for 23 years and who’s paid close attention to the accelerating changes that successive governments have wrought.
