URGENT! QUICK! WRITE A LETTER TO A LORD, HERE! NOW! and SAVE OUR NHS!
(Or write to 2, or a dozen, or all 800+ if you wish!)
Write a.s.a.p. please! Here’s how:
1 Click here to find a Lord or Baroness to write to from our selected list of those with an interest in the NHS. All are important to write to, but Lib Dems and Crossbenchers (unaligned peers) can have the biggest effect on the outcome of the debate or a vote. Remember that Labour members need to know your views too; and we hear of Conservatives who genuinely believe in the NHS and will act honourably, especially if they know they have support from the public. It is really worth writing to several peers if you can – to make maximum impact.
2 By clicking on the names of peers in the list you will be provided with both a picture and more detailed information about your chosen Lord or Baroness, including in some cases the direct e-mail address where it exists. Lords without e-mail addresses can be reached through firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can print out the letter template to be found at Link 4 below, or just hand write to your chosen peer.
Address the envelope to “The House of Lords, London SW1A OPW” using a first class stamp if possible please. You may find a peer you have something in common with – a place, or interest – or you may not. But your personal letter is an important individual connection, far better than using a mass-produced letter, which would quite probably be ignored. You should receive a reply. We’ll be glad to hear from you if you do.
3 Click here for key points you can make about the proposed regulations, and privatisation of the NHS generally. Pick one or two of the key points we’ve provided, explain them a little and say how you feel about them. Peers are people too, and they realise they don’t know everything about everything. Your letter can help inform them, or at least give them a different, personal perspective.

Note: there should also be a debate in the House of Commons as a result of an Early Day Motion from the Labour group, but no date is available as yet. We’ll keep you informed.
