Sit in over health cuts in Cambridgeshire

Issue No. 2394

A sit-in protest was staged at an NHS clinic in Cambridge by campaigners trying to stop a mental health service being cut.

Protesters occupied the Tenison Road Centre on Tuesday of last week to demonstrate against a programme for people with personality disorders getting the axe.

Up to 25 people joined in the protest.

They are angry that the Lifeworks service is due to close at the end of the month.

Campaigner Alex Jones said that about 100 people used the service, which would be replaced by a “more restrictive” scheme.
