In 1948 the NHS was established, offering health care free for all at the point of delivery.
In 2018 the NHS is up for auction in a ‘free for all’ to private health corporations.
NHS crisis: Too many old people, drunks, immigrants?
Or a 30-year old plot to kill the NHS?
NHS safe in Tory hands?
Or the corporate master plan: Health Care USA?
Lazy doctors and nurses?
Or a media onslaught to undermine the NHS?
999 Call for the NHS!
Powerful songs, dynamic music, unique video footage and moving storytelling.
Free For All pays tribute to a health service still rated the most efficient and successful in the world. Based on interviews with a wide range of health professionals, our show celebrates their passionate dedication to a publicly owned health care system free for all at the point of delivery.
Fight Back Now!
Free For All gives centre stage to the tidal wave of campaigning organisations fighting to defend the NHS from the corporate auction block.

“Some say the NHS is Labour’s greatest achievement, I agree. In its 70th year the NHS should be celebrated, as must the generations of NHS workers who have served with dedication. The NHS is far from safe in Tory hands. Our children and grandchildren will never forgive us if we fail to fight for its survival. Banner Theatre brings to life all that could be lost if we do not fight back. And fight back we will.”
