Pledge: Health workers against prevent

Our primary objective as health workers is the duty of care to the patient in front of us. Government policies like Prevent jeopardise this duty and consequently public health. As health workers and members of the health community, our duty of care is to challenge any and all attempts at making caring professions into an arm of the Home Office or police.
