Film screening: Sell Off, the abolition of your NHS

Against the backdrop of the recent Manchester NHS Devolution announcement and just four weeks before the General Election Greater Manchester Keep Our NHS Public and Manchester Film Coop would like to invite you to a screening of the radical film Sell Off, the abolition of your NHS directed by Peter Bach followed by the Manchester NHS Debate. Featuring over a dozen NHS insiders as witnesses, the film presents the alarming story of how the health service as we know it is being quietly abolished and replaced by a system based on the US model in which care is delivered by profit-maximising companies that charge patients for treatment, which is anyway to be restricted and reduced. The film will be followed by a post-screening discussion led by a panel including Dr Bob Gill (GP and candidate for the National Health Action Party), Lucy Reynolds (research fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) and prospective candidates from the Green Party, Labour Party and TUSC. The event is open to NHS and anti-cuts campaign groups, and any member of the public who cares about what is happening to the NHS. The bar will be open from 6pm.
