Aside Posted on Updated on
There is no need to tell you about the crisis in the NHS. Other than to say that in Derbyshire the proposal is to cut 535 NHS beds – nearly a third of the beds in Derbyshire hospitals – and to ‘save’ £219 million. Politicians won’t improve things unless there is a massive groundswell from below. So we would like you to help, even more, to make things happen.
Here are some things you can do.

Join the protest against outside Derby City Council, Wednesday 25th January, 5.30pm

Join the demonstration protesting about the Council not opposing the STP plans to cut beds and funding, at 5.30 outside the Council meeting. Then hear NHS and Social Care questions during the council meeting, in the Council Chamber.
