|Health Campaigners 'Casualty Convoy'|
Save Our Hospitals step up protest against closures
Local health campaigners plan a high visibility 'Casualty Convoy' travelling through North West London on Saturday (8th December), the latest measure against proposed changes to local health services.
It's the latest in a series of actions protesting against planned changes to local health service. Last week a petition was delivered to Downing Street last week eight weeks ago several thousand people gathered on Ealing Common to contest the proposals in tandem with similar rallies across North West London.
NHS North West London has just announced the results of its consultation on health services in the area, including the potential closure of up to four of the area's nine A&E units and the Maternity Unit at Ealing Hospital, as part of a greater transfer of local health services to private providers.
The consultation has been heavily criticised by campaign groups including Ealing Council and campaigners have vowed to continue their battle to save local A&E Departments.
