We Own It: National Day of Action

SATURDAY 11 JUNE

From the 1st of July 2022 our NHS across England will be reorganised. England will be divided into 42 new NHS bodies called Integrated Care Systems. We Own It have called a day of action, supported by Unite Community and KONP to protest against this change which will dis-integrate services and make the NHS less safe for patients and staff. Find out more here.


There will be individual demos up and down the country: If you can’t go, people are encouraged to take other actions. Further information can be found on:
