Medact Local Group BrightonSince 2018, the Brighton group has been creating a space in the city for health workers and friends to come together, to learn from each other, support each other, and to fight together for the human right to health for all.

We initially focused on homelessness, a huge issue in Brighton, and put on teaching for junior doctors and medical students about how to better identify and support people with insecure housing in hospital.

For our second year, we are focusing our energy on fighting the hostile environment within healthcare, primarily by resisting the charging regulations that are having a devastating impact for marginalised and migrant populations in the city, and society more widely. We are working on this through the Patients Not Passports campaign. Check the calendar for details of our next meeting and sign up to our mailing list to hear when and where to get involved:
