7 March - Rally to save the NHS

The TUC’s All Together for the NHS campaign is calling health workers and patients to a rally in Central London at 6PM on 7 March as the Health and Social Care Bill enters its final crucial parliamentary stages. TUC Deputy General Secretary Frances O'Grady said: 'Some changes have been made to the Bill but not nearly enough. Only this week we have seen a private company taking over an NHS hospital for the first time, as Circle moves in to the Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Cambridgeshire. This will be the future the NHS has to look forward to if the Bill stays in its current form’ http://www.tuc.org.uk/social/tuc-20551-f0.cfm
