Rallies are taking place in Exeter city centre and across the country with campaigners calling on Government to ‘fix our NHS’.
Tomorrow (Saturday) will be a national day of action and Save Our Hospital Services Devon will be among those calling for:
? An immediate cash injection to relieve the crisis facing the NHS, which has seen ‘unacceptable’ waiting times in A&E, delays admitting and discharging patients, deaths on trolleys and in waiting ambulances, and the cancellation of all routine operations.
? An end to the closure of hospitals, wards and beds in Devon.
? No imposition of Accountable Care contracts in Devon or any other part of the country, but a return to a fully public, fully funded, fully accountable NHS, free at the point of use.
You may also want to watch:
? Fair pay for NHS workers and the restoration of bursaries for student nurses.
The protest will begin in Princesshay Square at 11am tomorrow (Saturday).
