Rankin Maternity Unit

Issue No. 1761

MORE THAN 500 people joined a protest to save the Rankin Maternity Unit in Greenock near Glasgow last Saturday. The new head of the unitary health board, John Mullins, had stated two days earlier that the review of maternity services in Inverclyde was to be 'shelved'.

He claimed the original report which sparked off the campaign in February was merely a 'research paper'. This had been given a cautious welcome but protesters decided to let the demo go ahead to keep up the pressure.
