Dr Louise Irvine chair’s the Save Lewisham Hospital campaign which has seen a massive mobilisation of local people; 25,000 people marched to prevent the closure of the A & E. The campaign is planning a People’s Commission of Enquiry, chaired by barrister Michael Mansfield QC , who will hear the evidence that the Trust Special Administrator would not consider. Dr Louise Irvine is amongst the founders of the National Health Action Party and has been campaigning to stop privatisation for many years. The talk will focus on how our lack of democracy is being used to impose privatisation on our public services, how people can effectively resist, and explore what a more democratic health service would look like.
