Save the NHS - Protest this Saturday February 3rd, 11am Worcestershire Royal

Meet - 11am, Saturday February 3rd outside Worcestershire Royal main entrance - Worcester Labour Party in solidarity with the NHS, NHS staff and all who depend on it.

"Health Campaigns Together" & "The People’s Assembly" have called for a Day of Protest on Saturday 3 February in response to the worsening Winter Crisis. Join us outside the main entrance to Worcestershire Royal at 11am this Saturday and make our demands known.

Our NHS is in a serious crisis. Ambulances queuing for hours to hand over seriously ill patients, patients left in corridors waiting for beds, operations postponed, and mental health patients taken hundreds of miles to find a bed.

Theresa May & Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt issued a hollow apology and deny any crisis! But the problem comes from deliberate government policy of cuts, bed closures, pay restraint and privatisation. Our NHS has been starved of funding with inadequate investment in staff and resources. 8,000 front line beds and 20% of mental health beds have closed. Eight years of below inflation pay settlements have contributed to 100,000 vacant posts for health professionals – leaving no spare capacity for peaks of demand & increasing the pressure on the dedicated staff who remain

We don’t want apologies, we demand change. On 3 February join us, WTUC and others to demand:

An end to the winter crisis with a cash injection to restore the NHS budget

A commitment to increased funding each year

An end to the cap on NHS pay

And no cuts, no closures, no privatisation
