How to save the NHS
We should all be able to get healthcare when we need it.
The NHS makes this powerful idea possible, but despite the immense efforts of NHS staff, our health service has been struggling for some time to care for all its patients, and now with COVID, it’s far worse.
We know how important the NHS is, most of us rely upon it. but our appreciation must convert into meaningful support: not only by recruiting more staff and boosting resources, but also through more effective organisation, but we have been publishing evidence that tells a grim story.
It shows how recent governments have consistently failed to provide enough support and how policies have undermined safety. NHS staff tell us how these failures stop them from providing proper care and have created delays, suffering and deaths.
And yet ministers often provide a different picture, that is misleading, and in our experience rarely provides the clarity or honesty that the public deserves.
Yet It is more important than ever for us all know what is happening in our NHS, what is being done in our name, and what support our NHS needs.
This is why In 2019 we set up The Lowdown to produce evidence-based, campaigning journalism and research for the public and NHS staff. A new dedicated insight service, to work alongside all those that already do so much to fight for the NHS.
Working together we want to create the change the NHS needs; by supporting a more truthful and informed public debate, by helping to empower NHS supporters and by challenging our politicians to do better.
We are delighted that since our launch we are engaging a whole new audience.
