7 September 2011
London Keep Our NHS Public and the union Unite have called a march from St Thomas’s Hospital across Westminster Bridge to the House of Commons.
Supporters of the health service believe the coalition proposals will lead to privatisation and hospitals run for profit rather than patients.
The government stalled its plans earlier this year after public opposition.
PCS represents workers in the Department of Health and the union opposes cuts and privatisation in the NHS.
Protestors will be assembling on Wednesday 7 September at 6.30 pm outside St Thomas Hospital, Westminster Bridge Road, SE1 7EH to march on parliament. There will be a rally at the beginning and end of the march – with a candle-lit vigil at 9.30pm.
