Standing vigil for the NHS

From the "goingtoWork" TUC website - I have added my photo to the online mosaic here

"The dates of the third Commons reading of the controversial Health and Social Care Bill have been announced as the 6th and 7th September. On the evening of the 7th, MPs will vote on the Bill, and if it passes, will send it to the Lords for the next step in its progress.

We want to highlight to our MPs that the nation is watching them as they deliberate the Bill, and to Peers that we expect a great deal of them if they come to take control of the Bill's passage.

Over these two days in September, we will be standing vigil for our NHS - working to make sure everyone is aware of the danger our National Health Service is facing. 

Please take a moment to add your photo to a giant mosaic image we'll be creating to help lobby Parliamentarians. It only takes a minute, but if thousands of us contribute, it could build into a powerful focus to show our legislators the huge levels of public concern over the future of our NHS".

There are also posters to download and new media profile pictures.  We cannot just let this Tory led coalition destroy our NHS.
