    Lewisham Keep Our NHS Public (Lewisham KONP) formed in early February as a local branch of the national campaign to save the NHS from privatisation. KONP is a broad based, non party aligned campaigning organisation that seeks to defend the NHS as a publicly owned and publicly provided service that stays true to the founding principles of the NHS as a service that is equitable, comprehensive and free.

    The NHS is under threat, as never before, from the Tories'
     Health and Social Care Act which aims to transform the NHS into a competitive market where "any willing provider" can bid against NHS organisations to provide health services, allowing the for-profit private sector to take over large swathes of our health service.
