Paignton: organising against hospital closure
Nick Slater, South Devon Socialist Party
Local residents, hospital workers and activists, angry at the possible closure of Paignton Hospital, packed a brilliant and passionate Save Our Health Services (SOHS) meeting on 17 January.
The NHS workers in particular feel the crisis most harshly every day. They simply cannot work under the horrendous conditions that the Tory government is inflicting upon our hospitals and health care services.
One brave nurse described the nightly pressures of being so understaffed that it is bringing workers to their knees and putting them in incredibly compromised in dangerous situations. A humanitarian crisis? I'd say it is.
The meeting evolved into a new branch South Devon SOHS and I would ask everyone to get involved.
