Workers rally against NHS cuts

March 3, 2007

Nurses, doctors, hospital cleaners and other health workers will join a series of protests across the country to protest at cuts to NHS jobs and services.

Marches and rallies will be held in dozens of cities including London, Belfast, Manchester and Birmingham as well as towns across England and Wales.

The events are being co-ordinated by NHS Together, an alliance of unions and other organisations representing staff working in the NHS, as well as the TUC.

The aim is to defend the NHS and warn that services are under threat from deficits, the “rapid expansion” of the private sector and too much reform.
