NHS ANTI-SWINDLE TEAM
The NHS Anti-Swindle Team are a grassroots collective of artists, activists and mischief-makers who use creative civil disobedience to fight for a publicly run NHS and oppose all forms of private company control in the NHS, with a particular interest in the racketeers who are profiteering from ill health.
A publicly run health service that is free at the point of medical need.
The re-nationalisation of health and social care and an NHS that is free from private company control.
Sufficient government funding for good quality health and social care.
The transfer of contracts from private companies back to the NHS.
Financial gains from the Virgin Care 'Surrey Children's Services' lawsuit returned to the NHS.
The creation of the NHS was a radical act and political radicalism has been at the heart of the story of British healthcare protection. Inspired by creative, participatory, community organising and engagement, we are organising a series of campaigns and actions over summer 2018 to combat the private company control in our NHS.
Working in collaboration with Act Up and supported by a number of creative individuals, we have developed a new dynamic, creative hub of artists. Positioned at the section of art and activism, we utilise media, technology, film, music, theatre, puppetry and range of other mediums as resources. If you are interested in getting involved in our summer actions or provide support in any way, we would love to hear from you.
