Hospital Campaigners Plan National Meeting Later This Month

PUSH (People United Saving Hospitals) was formed in 2006 as an umbrella organisation uniting hospital campaign groups from around Britain. They now have the support of 25 or more groups. They are campaigning to stop the cuts, closures and privatisation in the NHS and they are supporting the demand of the Unison Health Service Group for a national demonstration in the summer-

PUSH welcomes the decision of the the Unison Health Service Group Executive Committee which agreed that there should be a national demonstration in June or July. There will need to be a campaign in the unions to ensure that this decision of the the Unison Health Group is carried out by the leaders of Unison.

The PUSH campaign believe that it is essential that all those who want a national demonstration and are committed to building for one meet together to decide how to take the campaign for a national demonstration forward.

To this end PUSH are holding a national meeting on Saturday 31st March at Coventry Transport Museum, Millennium Place, Coventry, starting at 1pm.

Meanwhile Keep Our NHS Public has a new pamphlet out by David Byrne and Sally Ruane that is available online - The Case for Hospital Reconfiguration - not proven. A response to the IPPR's The Future Hospital.
