NHS not Trident block on Leeds march for NHS

14 April @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

  • With our drastically and deliberately underfunded NHS crashing into the buffers this winter and getting headlines in the press
  • NHS England ploughing ahead with plans to break up the NHS into yet more bite sized pieces on a plate for private firms, currently known as Accountable Care Organisations – but watch the name change as the ACO brand is seen as too US and toxic
  • two Judicial Reviews initiated by campaigners (one to be heard in Leeds on 24th April) challenging the legality of Accountable Care Organisations
  • Yorkshire Hospitals rushing ahead to outsource Facilities staff
  • More cuts, closures and rationing
  • A continued cap on NHS pay, almost 100,000 vacant posts and demoralised, exhausted staff leaving the NHS altogether

11.30 Assemble in Victoria Gardens, outside Leeds Art Gallery

12.15 March sets off, led by the wonderful PCS Samba Band

1/1.15 Marchers should be returning to Victoria Gardens for short rally

2pm Finish

All welcome – help save our NHS!
