To Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health
Why is this important?
A top NHS professional, Dr Helen Thomas, has revealed that Jeremy Hunt has been considering a plan that could require patients see their GP or call 111 before visiting A&E. The plans could mean people being turned away in the middle of the night, waiting to get permission before they can visit A&E.
Extreme measures like these are only being considered because our NHS is at breaking point. A huge petition will show that these new proposals are unacceptable, and convince Jeremy Hunt to drop the idea before it's trialled.
Will you chip in?
Thank you for signing the petition asking Jeremy Hunt to rule out restricting access to A&E departments. Will you chip in to make sure we can move fast to win the campaigns that matter to all of us, like keeping our A&Es open to everyone? You can make a secure donation here:
