Many argue that it is not enough to try to exclude the NHS from trade deals like TTIP but that the whole nature of such treaties is unacceptable. However, it’s possible to present the implications of such treaties for the NHS and call for the broad exemption of the NHS as way of raising general awareness about the new breed trade and investment agreements.
If, following the UK’s exit from the EU, the NHS remains at risk from TTIP because we remain subject to the treaty’s provisions for 20 years (it’s not clear yet which provisions we remain subject to other than investment protection) there are a number of actions that you can take to raise your concerns. These include:
- Join Keep Our NHS Public
- Look out for forthcoming campaigns, such as those run by 38 Degrees.
- For information and campaign news, visit
- Write to your MP and ask them to clarify or raise a question in the House of Commons on the implications of ICS or ISDS for the future of the NHS, if TTIP is signed before the UK leaves the EU.
