Groundswell: The Grassroots battle for the NHS
Groundswell – A Grassroots Battle for the NHS by independent film maker John Furse. The documentary follows a group of determined campaigners from Darlington. Beginning in 2014 during the setting up of the 999 Call for the NHS campaign, it runs through to 2017 with their lobbying success at the Labour Party Conference. Covering 2 General Elections and 2 Labour Party leadership contests, it charts the struggles, frustrations, obstacles and some of the successes of the campaign. It is a must watch film, not least because it shows the importance of people power and the wider movement in bringing about party political policy change.
