For more than 70 years the NHS has cared for us. It’s there for us when we need it most. But politicians have continually mistreated the NHS. And during the pandemic, it has come close to collapse.
All of us - no matter where we live or who we are - should have an equal chance to live a full and healthy life. We must overcome the disadvantages and inequalities that mean some people’s circumstances lead to worse health and poorer care.
This is our NHS. We must give patients and frontline health workers the ability to shape services, so that they meet the needs of communities across the UK and give patients the respect and dignity they deserve.
Across the UK bad housing, poorly paid work, pollution, and poverty are making us sick. We must do something about these underlying causes - it’s not good enough to simply treat people once they’re already unwell.
If nothing matters more than our health, then why aren’t we funding healthcare properly? We must dramatically increase spending to the levels seen in France and Germany - and ensure that NHS staff get the pay and support that means they can do their job.
Right now, the profits of healthcare and pharmaceutical corporations are being put before our right to health. We must bring an end to private companies running NHS services, and take action to protect patients from big pharma and big data firms.

There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
Local organisations who want a NHS New Deal
Green New Deal Kent, is the local hub for Green New Deal activists in Kent. Working with them, we hope to highlight just how beneficial a Green New Deal will be for the Isle of Sheppey and Kent as a whole.
National Organisations who are helping this happen
Our goal is simple: the steady and irreversible replacement of today’s unequal, extractive economy with one where freedom, solidarity, and dignity are a universal inheritance.
Green New Deal UK is a non-profit organisation formed in 2019 by organisers who are committed to social, economic and climate justice. We are a small staff team working closely with a number of partners and an army of dedicated volunteers.
Crowdsourced by NHS patients across the UK, the New Deal will mean increased funding, proper support for NHS staff, & patient health put above corporate profits.
We are working with both Local and National Partners to come up with a strategy on how best to get our MP and councillors onside and endorsing as many parts of the Green New Deal as possible.
