Leicester Socialist Party hosted a determined public meeting on 27 January to discuss how to build a fightback against the escalating attacks on our NHS.

Addressing the gathering of around 40 people, the chair of the Save Glenfield Heart Unit campaign, Steve Score, emphasised the importance of "taking the momentum from the successful Glenfield campaign into the ongoing battle to save the NHS."

Local health expert Dr Sally Ruane outlined the dire problems facing local health services. Tom Hunt, a nurse and Socialist Party member from the inspiring Save Chatsworth health campaign, explained how he and his fellow workers had built a successful campaign to keep their neurological rehabilitation ward open in Mansfield.

The meeting resolved to back the national day of action on 3 February. In Leicester, campaigners will be gathering outside the Leicester Royal Infirmary between 11am and 12.30pm to protest together in opposition to the Tory attacks on our health service.
