Hi – welcome!
This is the website for 38degrees Haringey affiliated to the seriously influential national campaigning group 38 Degrees. See www.38degrees.org.uk 38degrees Haringey campaigns on health services locally and to ensure the NHS remains a high quality public service. We oppose any threats to democratic public services and institutions. See ABOUT US for how we started and more information.
We meet about once a month in the Haringey area and are linked to other local groups. At our last meeting we took stock on what we had achieved and how to go forward.
Will the NHS have a 70th birthday on July 5th 2018?
The NHS is 69 on July 5th 2017. To celebrate the occasion Haringey ‘Keep Our NHS Public’ handed out cakes, apples and balloons in Wood Green on 2 July to wish the NHS ‘Happy Birthday’ and to thank health workers for keeping the service going.
We also gave out information about leaked plans for further devastating cuts in services in Haringey and neighbouring boroughs. More information about these see: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/jun/20/leak-shows-devastating-impact-of-planned-nhs-cuts-in-london )
The birthday bash coincided with the end of our picture exhibition at Wood Green Library, ‘How Come We Didn’t Know’, which vividly demonstrates how large corporations are taking over the NHS.
Big thanks to the library staff , who were more than helpful, to Morrisons, who donated over 400 cup cakes, and to all those who made it happ
