If you need transport, please get in touch. Several NHS campaign groups from across Yorkshire are hoping to stand together.
The Local Medical Committees of the British Medical Association are holding a Conference in York on May 22-23 in York at the Barbican. Amongst the motions put forward are several relating to charging patients to see their GP – see section 27 of the Agenda available here: http://bma.org.uk/working-for-change/negotiating-for-the-profession/bma-general-practitioners-committee/lmc-conference-2014
Whilst the motions are unlikely to get approved or supported by a majority of GP’s there are plans to picket the Barbican from 8:30 am on May 22nd to give people a chance to demonstrate their support for a National Health Service free at the point of delivery as delegate arrive for the 9:00 am start.
Support for the action has come from York Peoples’ Assembly, Leeds Keep Our NHS Public (KONP) and Medsin (medical students) amongst others.
