Add your name to the hundreds of NHS workers and campaigners backing Jeremy Corbyn

corbynbmaNHS campaigners have launched the following statement in support of Jeremy Corbyn. It will be sent to the press soon.

Please add your/your organisation’s name by filling in the form below.

You must be a Labour member or supporter to sign.


We, Labour-supporting nurses, doctors, health and care workers and campaigners, are backing the re-election of Jeremy Corbyn, as the candidate genuinely committed to saving our National Health Service.

Both Jeremy Corbyn and Owen Smith have said they support a public NHS. But David Cameron has said the same. Being Labour does not automatically mean having a good position on the NHS. The last Labour government sadly promoted privatisation in the health service, a foundation on which the Tories eagerly built.

Looking at Corbyn’s and Smith’s policies and records, the difference is clear.

Jeremy Corbyn has a long record of opposing privatisation and fighting to defend a genuinely public health service. Owen Smith’s record, judged by both repeated public statements and his career as a lobbyist for pharmaceutical corporation Pfizer, is very different. We note he has hired a top Pfizer lobbyist, John Lehal, to run his leadership campaign!

We do not want “NHS” to mean a logo stamped on private companies getting public money to take over profitable patients and services, with unprofitable services like A&Es left increasingly starved of cash. Nor an expensive, wasteful bureaucracy to run the health market.

We want the reinstatement of a comprehensive, universal public health service – publicly-owned, -run, -accountable and –provided, and publicly funded to meet clinical need. We want radical policies to tackle the poverty, social deprivation and inequality which contribute so much to ill-health in Britain.

That is why we are backing Corbyn’s re-election and calling for all NHS supporters to do the same. We must make clear differences on health central to this campaign.

  1. Thanks Mr Corbyn for your efforts. I don’t trust politicians but I do trust your intentions. You are not an average politician we know .. you are an honest man who is driven to put things right. Thank you for that.

  2. Jann oliver says:

    Clinical Service Lead, South London

  3. Maddie Redd says:

    I once said that I would never vote for Labour after Tony Blair. Jeremy Corbyn changed my mind to the degree that I joined the Labour party so that I could help ensure that this fine upstanding gentleman could lead this disfunctional party to the success it and all it’s voters deserve.

  4. Patricia Bayley says:

    As a Community Staff Nurse I am beginning to witness the stealthy backdoor privatisation of the NHS first hand it has to stop and I want Jeremy Corbyn to be the person to do this and reverse the damage that has been done.
