The Health and Social Care Bill in the Lords
The government's controversial Health and Social Care Bill is making its way through Parliament, and after being approved by MPs, it's now with the House of Lords for further scrutiny and revision.
The involvement of the Peers marks an important step in the passage of the Bill and could be an opportunity to get the changes we need to stop or alter the Bill's measures which could break up and sell off parts of our health service.
Adopt a Peer
You can help raise concerns about the proposed changes to the NHS by writing to a member of the House of Lords. They aren't as used to individual lobbying as MPs, so receiving personal contacts from members of the public should really get their attention.
Of course, one of the reasons they don't get much contact is that they don't have a direct group of constituents. We can help get around this, using this tool to adopt a Peer. We'll match you at random to a member of the House of Lords and help you to contact them, either directly with a posted letter, or by email.
