Frequently asked questions

About us

What is EveryDoctor?

We are a doctor-led campaign organisation fighting for a better NHS. We have a community of 1,700 doctor members, and speak to a wider network of over 300,000 people. Our movement is growing every day.

We aren’t affiliated with any party and work with politicians from across the political spectrum and various organisations to further the issues which matter to the NHS.

EveryDoctor Ltd is a registered company in England and Wales; Company No. 11695500, VAT No. 363288772, company address Suites 1-3, The Hop Exchange, 24 Southwark Street, London, SE1 1TY.

You're not a charity, what are you?

We are a not-for-profit limited company; you can find our articles of association on the Companies House website here, and download them here. This allows us to speak out independently on a range of health related topics. Every penny donated or raised goes to fund our work supporting members and fighting for a better NHS for all through campaigns and advocacy.

How are you funded?

We do not receive any government funding. Our work is 100% funded through membership and supporter subscriptions, merchandise sales, grants and donations. 

You can see a breakdown of our income and expenditure for 2021 (along with an overview of all our work from last year!) in our 2021 Annual Report here.

Our campaigns

What do we campaign on?

We’ve made an impact over the last few years with grassroots campaigning and we’re now building a long-term sustainable movement to hold our leaders to account.

Nothing speaks to this more than our work to #ProtectNHSworkers in the COVID-19 crisis, where we advocate for doctor and patient safety through our movement of dedicated doctors, the press, a cross-party coalition of 100 MPs and by harnessing the groundswell of public support for the NHS at this time.

Prior to COVID-19, we were also running campaigns to expose unsafe practice in hospitals and widespread burn out in the medical profession, fix the broken GP pensions scheme, raise concerns with the Babylon scheme, and challenge the NHS surcharge for doctors on visas.

Why is privatisation + outsourcing bad for the NHS?

Privatisation harms patients; research by the University of Oxford published in The Lancet, found conclusively that “Private-sector outsourcing corresponded with significantly increased rates of treatable mortality”. It also impacts sustainable long-term caring relationships between properly supported NHS staff and their patients. Shareholders shouldn’t be part of our public healthcare conversations and private companies should not be skimming a profit from the NHS. As the NHS is a publicly funded public health service we strongly believe it should be funded, run and delivered by the public sector.

Are my donations tax deductible?

Donations to EveryDoctor are not tax-deductible as we are a campaigning organisation and not a registered charity.

How does EveryDoctor differ from the related Facebook forum The Political Mess?

The Political Mess (TPM) is the largest Facebook forum for UK doctors which welcomes doctors of all grades and specialities. It launched in early 2018, has over 25,000 members and is a very active space. A small team of doctors moderate TPM, to keep it feeling safe and welcoming to our community.

We poll TPM members on their experiences and listen to doctors’ views within TPM, but no strategic decision-making is made within this forum. This is because not every member of TPM is a member of EveryDoctor.

What happens if I cancel my membership?

You can cancel your membership at any time. Though please be aware if you choose to cancel your membership for any reason, we do not provide a back-dated refund of your donations.
