Brent Fightback will be supporting an urgent call for action as the government try to push the Health Bill through parliament. There will be a demonstration and march from St Thomas Hospital, Lambeth Palace Road to Parliament, assembling at the hospital at 6.30pm and then a Torchlight Vigil outside Parliament at 9.30pm. MAP If you can help with leafleting for the demonstrations please meet at the cafe just inside the main entrance of Central Middlesex hospital at noon tomorrow (Monday).
See below for legal advice that proves we are right to be concerned that the Bill still threatens the very existence of the National Health Service and important information about how you can help.
We can make a real difference as some Liberal Democrats threaten a rebellion. Meanwhile the government tries to hold the line and submits a deluge of name change amendments.
