East Devon Alliance represents East Devon at national NHS march

Cllr Val Ranger (Newton Poppleford & Harpford); Mayor of Axminster, Paul Hayward; Cllr Cathy Gardner (Sidmouth Town)

leading the support from East Devon at what the national papers describe as “one of the biggest NHS Rallies in history”.

They joined an estimated 250,000 healthcare workers, and their supporters, including coachloads from Devon, in a march from Tavistock Square to Parliament Square last weekend (Sat 4th March). The aim is to stop the current dismantling of the NHS, which it’s claimed is putting patient care , and lives, at risk; and to rethink policies where huge amounts of government money are going to PFI (Private Finance Initiative) hospital loan repayments, and to tiers of administration such as the much criticised Clinical Commissioning Groups. (CCGs).

Watch for reports in the local press this week.”
