Petition launched: Keep Glos NHS Public

Click on picture left to see the overwhelming opposition to these changes to our health service. In Gloucestershire the campaign continues - the petition is at: http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/keep-gloucestershire-s-nhs-public.html

The legal hearing that will help decide the fate of our local community health services (ie. whether they are transferred to a private 'community interest company' and opened up to private sector competition in 3 years or fewer) is taking place on Wed 8th and poss Thur 9th February at the High Court in London. Here is the press release from Stroud Against the Cuts, here is their latest leaflet and see here the video I edited  on the talk by Prof Wendy Savage. Tomorrow at noon this blog will publish the latest press release on this issue.
