Taking the NHS message to football

UNISON South West London Community Health Branch arranged a 'Defend Our NHS - Join the Resistance' advert and pitch-side board at high flying Dulwich Hamlet FC (Ryman Premier Division). Dulwich play in Pink and Blue and have concessionary admittance for unwaged and NHS workers. Over 700 watched Dulwich Hamlet beat Billericay on Saturday to go second in the League. Recently UNISON had electronic billboards at the Scotland v Croatia international and for many years the South Ayrshire Branch has done pitch-side boards at several grounds for Show Racism the Red Card backed by UNISON's General Political Fund.
