Care UK strikers visit Stafford hospital protest camp

Issue No. 2416

More than 30 striking care workers from Care UK in Doncaster visited the protest camp outside Stafford Hospital on Wednesday of last week. 

There are over 50 tents outside the hospital protesting against plans to remove acute, maternity and paediatric services.

Richard Duffy from the campaign to save the hospital told Socialist Worker, “The visit from the Care UK workers was really good. We all felt a sense of solidarity.”

Around 100 people from other hospital campaigns also visited the camp last Saturday. They met up to build links to fight attacks on the NHS around the country.
