Hazel Must Go! opposes cuts to Salford NHS
On 30 March, the Manchester Evening News announced 750 proposed job cuts at Salford Royal Hospital. There are also proposals to close Cleveland House community mental health team. The Hazel Must Go campaign is opposing these cuts.
Hazel Must Go, will be contesting disgraced ex-minister Hazel Blears' seat in the general election under the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition banner. Candidate David Henry said: "We are in complete opposition to any cuts in the health service in Salford. Where is Hazel Blears on this issue? In the past she at least pretended to care about cuts in her back yard - her silence on this occasion is deafening."
