Voters in Bexley and Bromley will have the chance to learn more about NHS privatisation at a film screening.
The Bexley, Bromley and Greenwich group of the National Health Action Party (NHAP)- a political party set up to keep the NHS free at the point of use – is showing Sell Off – The Abolition Of Your NHS on Wednesday.
The screening will take place at Christ Church on Main Road, Sidcup.
The hour long film will start at 7pm and will be followed by a question and answer session with GP Dr Bob Gill, the party’s general election candidate in Old Bexley and Sidcup, and other party members.
Spokeswoman Lynn Ellard said: “There is great public concern about the politics of privatising our NHS and the dismantling and selling off our health services.
“This film is radical and a must see. It tells the alarming story of how the health service as we know it is being quietly abolished, to be replaced by a system modelled on the US insurance-based healthcare system, in which care is delivered by profit-maximising companies that charge patients for treatment.
“It features more than a dozen NHS insiders as witnesses, including a professor, two consultant radiologists, a cancer expert, a public interest lawyer and several outspoken GPs, and what they all have to say is shocking, unusual and brave.
“The film will leave you with an overall admiration for the doctors speaking out, combined with anger at what is happening.”
