Are you willing to fight for your NHS?

25 Aug 2011

Cameron and Clegg`s NHS Bill is expected to be forced through in the House of Commons on the 7th September. If this happens we will experience worse patient care, increased red tape and more privatisation. This could lead to the destruction of our National Health Service.

Throughout the country those of us who love the NHS will be holding “Big NHS Events” over the weekend 3rd & 4th September.  Airedale GMB Branch Secretary and Staff Nurse Lou Foster-Wilson, in conjunction with the Regional Learning and Organising Team, has organised a mass leaflet at the final Keighley Cougars game of the season on the 4th September and a Vigil at Airedale Hospital at 7pm on the 7th September.

We have a number of tickets for the game, please let us know in advance if you can help leaflet on the day. 

• Keighley Cougars address: Cougar Park Royds Ings Avenue, Keighley, BD21 3RF

• Airedale Hospital address; Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, Airedale General Hospital,SkiptonRoad,Steeton, Keighley,BD20 6TD
