I went to North Devon to film a new part of my documentary GROUNDSWELL: WHOSE NHS? A GRASSROOTS JOURNEY – ‘Spreading The Word’.
This sees 999ers Deborah Harrington and Steve Carne visit an NHS campaign hotspot in North Devon. Deborah gives local campaigners an impressively lucid round-up of the history of NHS privatisation and the profound, imminent threats to the NHS posed by NHS England’s current Sustainability & Transformation Plans (STPs). Their visit culminates with a touching demo by local residents against the closure of their A & E unit.
