Gate protests against job cuts took place at Southport and Ormskirk hospital in north west England last week.
On Monday of last week, about 400 workers protested at the Southport site and the same number at Ormskirk on Friday of last week.
Marie Lloyd, the Unison branch secretary, said, “We will continue to fight to protect staff jobs. We want no more compulsory redundancies.”
Debbie Brannon of the Amicus union, which also joined protests, said “We have just heard the trust has put aside £100,000 to employ a new ‘turnaround director’. That money could have been used to save these jobs.”
Joan Morrison, a patient of the hospital, asked, “Why is a Labour government allowing this to happen? How do they sleep at night?”
