These are the beginning words to an article we should all read, and try to do something about, however small the action is. If it means signing petitions, going on organised protest marches, or anything else thought of, we should all do our bit to save an institution that has saved many of our lives in the past, and will, hopefully, still be doing in the future – if we all fight together:

Ministers have ignored a strident “winter warning” from NHS Providers – the body that represents NHS and foundation trusts. The government is determined to stick to their plan to freeze NHS budgets for the decade to 2020 even as costs and population rise.

England’s hospitals and other NHS providers warned that if an extra £350m were not found by August at the latest, we will face another winter crisis even worse than the situation last year.

It’s the middle of September, and there’s no extra cash, and none promised. . . . . . . . . . .
