Meeting to defend health service in Waltham Forest

Issue No. 2236

Over 50 local people and health workers attended a meeting called to defend the NHS on Tuesday of last week in Waltham Forest.

Activists from the Save Leyton Green Clinic and Save King George campaigns spoke at the meeting.

Local people expressed concern about the loss of local services and anger that the Tories have no mandate for these changes.

Health workers spoke of cuts to jobs and pay happening now and increasing workloads.

The meeting agreed to support a local campaign of stalls and meetings, and help organise a national lobby of parliament.
