Members of Witney and Chipping Norton Labour Party Branches joined the thousands of NHS staff, campaigners and Trades Unionists in London today at the Health Campaigns Together march and rally in defence of the NHS.
“We took a clear message to Westminster today” said Steve Akers, Vice Chair of CNLP, “no cuts – no closures – no privatisation. NHS and Social Care are in crisis as a result of years of underfunding by coalition and Conservative Governments. The Labour Party will be calling on the Chancellor to make an emergency cash injection for NHS and Social Care in the forthcoming Budget to address this crisis made in Downing Street”
CNLP is campaigning in Chipping Norton and villages with a petition against the downgrading of services at the Horton General Hospital in Banbury and any threatened loss of maternity or other services at Chipping Norton Community Hospital.
Members are pictured with the Witney CLP banner in Parliament Square at the Rally having just listened to Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn and Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell.
