Up to 1,000 people marched in south east London last Saturday, celebrating a High Court decision overruling plans to slash services at Lewisham hospital.

Health minister Jeremy Hunt is appealing the decision. 

The marchers were jubilant to have won and angry that Hunt still wants to close A&E, maternity and the hospitals specialist children’s  A&E services.

The campaign’s legal team is in court again on 28 and 29 October to fight the appeal.

Many people bought tickets for the Lewisham coaches to the Manchester demonstration on the Tory Party conference on Sunday 29 September.
