P4H (Providing for Health) is described as a global network for universal health coverage (UHC) and social health protection (SHP).
NHA comment: “The public event website makes no mention any more, that we can see, of the £20bn of ‘lucrative’ contracts boasted of in the private invitation that went out to the health industry”.
Ed: there is, however, indirect reference on the main site to ‘£1.5 billion of procurement efficiencies’ and ‘the NHS could save up to £5 billion a year by 2019/20 through a variety of efficiency measures’.
Supporters of the National Health Action Party, founded by health professionals, will be in front of the Birmingham Library, then move to the ICC, Broad Street, Birmingham, at 9.30am and stage a protest until 10.45am.
By this time all the participants to the ‘Procurement for Health’ event will be in the building.
Deborah and Jessica of the NHA Campaign Team write: “We will have a room near the ICC to meet in for a discussion straight after the protest. This will provide an excellent informal opportunity for building connections. We hope you can stay with us for that”.
Can anyone help today – Tuesday?
An NHA Birmingham volunteer, Paul, has kindly offered to take delivery of a batch of leaflets on Tuesday and make them available for collection to anyone local who can distribute some at any time before the protest. He will be outside South Yardley Library between 2 and 4pm on Tuesday. There is free parking if you are driving and bus route 11 stops outside the library and the 900 stops just round the corner. The library is situated where the Coventry Road (A45) crosses the outer circle (A4040), at the Swan Island, 100 yards towards Acocks Green.
