Health Workers And Users Come 'All Together' To Save The NHS
The Government has recently published proposals which represent the most damaging attacks on the NHS since its inception. Under the banner of 'All Together for the NHS', unions and campaigning groups are coming together to call on the Government to think again.
Friday 1st April will be 'All Together for the NHS day', with health workers and service users getting together to lobby key MPs in their constituencies and campaigning to raise the profile of the issue through events all over the country.
There are events taking place all over the region, including the lobbying of Liberal Democrat and Conservative MPs: Ian Swales, Alan Beith and Guy Opperman, as well as a leafleting session being held outside North Tees Hospital.
Northern TUC Regional Secretary Kevin Rowan said:
These proposals were not in any manifesto, the Government has no mandate for these changes. The majority of the medical profession now oppose these plans and the more the public know what it will mean for them, the more pressure we can build to halt this devastating attack on the NHS."
