The true, eye-opening account of how the NHS has been failed and what we can do to save it. The true, eye-opening account of how the NHS has been failed and what we can do to save it. ‘The NHS is an institution. But it’s also a political football, kicked back and forth between politicians for the past 75 years. It’s a burden to some and a potent vote-winner for others. It’s a construct, framed in the media. It’s a set of ideas and a logo. It’s a workplace for many and the birthplace of almost all of us. It’s become a valued part of our society, it is extraordinarily special – and it’s being destroyed.’ The NHS is at crisis point. In the 75 years since it was founded on the dream of making healthcare accessible to everyone, its principles have been chipped away at and disregarded by successive political leaders. The result: an underfunded, understaffed, exhausted workforce, a decimation of patient services and the infiltration of privatisation within our public healthcare system. We are now in danger of losing what we have come to depend upon: the NHS is collapsing and a two-tier healthcare system is emerging in its place. We can stop this, but only if we do it together. In her first book, Dr Julia Grace Patterson, founder of EveryDoctor and fierce advocate for the future of the NHS, lays bare the truth about the current state of our healthcare system and sets forth transformational ideas on how we could save it. A book built on a love of the NHS at its heart, Critical is a must-read for anyone who wants it to survive for another 75 years. ‘Brilliant. Everyone who cares about the NHS should read this brilliant book’ – Peter Stefanovic ‘If you’re a campaigner for the NHS, this new book, Critical, is a must-read. And if you’re not a campaigner for the NHS, this new book, Critical, is a must-read. Be informed; be angry; fight.’ – Dominic Minghella ‘A fantastic read for anyone interested in what’s happening to our NHS’ – Jemma Forte ‘Recommended reading. Angry but not shouty, terrifically researched and written’ – Russ Jones ‘An incredibly important book about the demise of our NHS and what we must do to reverse the damage that’s being done to it. A sobering and important read. I can highly recommend it’ – Kit Yates ‘Exceptional … a must read’ – Grace Blakeley ‘Critical is a superb, concise, yet informative and passionate piece of work. It neatly outlines just why politicians and successive governments have vandalised and decimated our NHS. However, more importantly, it shows the reader that there is another way – and that there is also something still left to fight for.’ Canary ‘Julia Grace Patterson has written a book reminding us just why we need a well-funded, state-run NHS of the sort neither major political party in the UK now supports. She's right.’ Richard Murphy Dr Julia Grace Patterson is the founder and chief executive of EveryDoctor. The non-profit campaigning organisation was established in 2019 with the belief that doctors have the power to end the NHS crisis, collectively using their voices to highlight matters of national importance and demand an overturn of the broken system they work within. They brought the UK government to court along with Good Law Project, proving the existence of the VIP PPE lane. Through numerous dynamic national campaigns, they have helped to secure important policy changes to safeguard lives and have put the future of the NHS high on the agenda. Julia qualified as a doctor in 2010 but is not working clinically, having devoted herself full-time to advocacy work since 2020. She won a Marie Claire Future Shaper award in 2021 and speaks to hundreds of thousands of people online every day about the NHS and its future. Critical is her first book. • To publish ahead of the NHS’s 75th anniversary – the perfect time to reflect on the ideals the NHS was founded upon, how far we’ve fallen from them and what the future of the NHS might look like. • Through EveryDoctor and Political Mess, Julia is a unique position to have regular contact with thousands of NHS staff across the country. This will enable her to crowdsource the content of the book and will also give her a channel to promote it. • Julia is extremely impressive and articulate – she won the Marie Claire FutureShaper prize for 2021. She is very used to speaking on these issues in the press – in 2021 alone, EveryDoctor was featured in 491 media pieces. • Julia has over 235k very engaged Twitter followers – a number that is quickly rising – including many celebrity supporters.
