The NHS was created after World War II, when working class people were determined there’d be no return to the poverty, hunger, squalor & diseases of the 1930s.
The ConDems are driving us back to those bleak years.
The history of healthcare and the struggle to win a national health service has vital lessons for today’s health workers, trade unionists and all of us who use the NHS.
