Save St Helier Hospital (Tory Cllrs join Union Protest)

UNISON press release. "Campaigners fighting plans to axe maternity, casualty and children's services at St Helier Hospital in Sutton, Surrey took their protest to the doorstep of sacked Health Minister and local MP Paul Burstow (Sutton) at 12 noon Friday - 7th September - and have demanded a meeting to discuss the proposals which are due to go to formal public consultation on the 17th September.

UNISON members from St Helier Hospital were not only joined by their colleagues from the GMB but surprisingly by a number of London Borough of Sutton Conservative Party Councillors, who apart from pledging their commitment to Save St Helier Hospital held aloft a banner proclaiming "Vote Lib Dem Get Tory Cuts"

Michael Walker UNISON Regional Officer stated

"We have fought previous Governments who tried to close our hospital and won, we will do so again".
