Over 150 councillors, tenants associations’ reps, medical students, pensioners and others joined a lively Keep Our NHS Public march through Camden, north London, on Saturday of last week.

They handed a 2,500-strong petition against further privatisation of local doctors’ surgeries to the primary care trust. Campaigners are now demanding that Camden council organise a referendum over the issue.

A few miles further north, around 100 people marched through Haringey in a similar protest against the proposed privatisation of the Laurel’s GP surgery.
