Join CND for our online fringe meeting as part of TUC 2021.

During this ongoing massive public health crisis the government has decided to increase its nuclear arsenal by over 40% and make a big increase in military expenditure, but it refuses to pay nurses properly. How can it justify this shocking misallocation of public funds – on weapons of mass destruction rather than healthcare – during a pandemic? Join us to discuss how we can change government priorities and give nurses and the NHS what they deserve.

With speakers Dr John Puntis, co-chair of Keep our NHS Public; Rachel Ambrose, Mental Health Nurse, Nurses United & Nurses of Colour Network; Sam Mason, PCS Policy Officer Sustainability & Climate change; and Kate Hudson, General Secretary, CND.
