GMIAU have formed a coalition with Medact Manchester and Greater Manchester Keep Our NHS Public (GMKNP) to end migrant charging and data sharing. We are campaigning locally as the Greater Manchester branch of the national #PatientsNotPassports campaign. We have written this open letter which we plan to send to the NHS Trusts in Greater Manchester, alongside the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham.
Our blog can provide some more information about the injustices we are fighting.
Please sign our open letter to demonstrate mass support for a truly universal NHS.
We call on all Trusts within Greater Manchester to ensure that everyone has access to healthcare, regardless of immigration status, ID or proof of address.
