Protests in Nuneaton
OVER 300 people demonstrated against proposed hospital cuts in Nuneaton on 17 August. The Acute Services Review wants to transfer some emergency care along with children's and maternity services from Nuneaton to the new PFI hospital in Coventry.
Angry local residents are determined to fight these plans. They worry that in the long term all services will be transferred to Coventry to provide the financial resources for the over-budget PFI hospital.
Speakers at the rally included two Coventry Socialist Party councillors Dave Nellist and Rob Windsor as well as nurses and union representatives.
Further local action is planned. And health protests continue to spread with another set for nearby Hinckley, in Leicestershire, on 16 September.
