A really easy action you can take to support the NHS workers on strike is to print off our Pay NHS Heroes A Hero’s Wage poster and put it up in your window.
Put them up at home, at work, at school, in local shop windows, anywhere and everywhere! Scroll on for online versions to share on socials too.

Click here: Picket line conversations on health and climate justice
How do you start conversations to connect health workers concerns with climate justice on the picket line? How do you link the climate crisis with cost of living crisis & the workers’ demands? What are the pitfalls to avoid?
Join this training to gain tips and confidence in having those conversations. This session will pay particular attention to the connections between health and climate justice to support your conversations and show solidarity on the picket lines.

Register a solidarity action
Let’s show striking NHS workers that millions of us around the country stand with them. Register today and you’ll receive resources and support to organise an NHS solidarity action where you live.
It’s a really hard decision for NHS nurses and ambulance workers to go out on strike. They want to be on the frontline saving lives, not standing out on the cold picket lines. We need to show them we are with them through a massive wave of public support and warm gratitude.
