The Great NHS Heist Documentary
Bob Gill Danson Park Ward, ENG
I'm Dr Bob Gill, a family doctor and NHS campaigner based in South East London.
Over the last few years I have become aware of creeping privatisation in our National Health Service. There has been a concerted effort by consecutive governments to convert our NHS to a profit driven private health insurance system.
In 2014 I co-produced a film, "Sell Off – The Abolition of your NHS" (available on YouTube) which explained the dismantling of our health service. It has been shown at screenings around the country and been well received by audiences, judging by the feedback at over 50 such events I have attended in the last 18 months for Question and Answer sessions.
I've had many requests to make another film. Our new project "THE GREAT NHS HEIST" will make clear what is going on and how the final betrayal will play out unless we act to stop the heist of our NHS.
We will explore the measures being taken to drive us to an American-style health system and what is in store for us in a for-profit system.
Our film can be made, with your support. We won't have money for stock footage or fancy music but if we can raise enough to get to all our interviewees and cover our equiment costs then we will be able to tell this important story. All the people invovled are putting in their time and expertise voluntarily.
I thank you for supporting this project and the people donating time, expertise and resourses to "THE GREAT NHS HEIST" documentary.
