There is still tremendous ongoing support for our NHS and its staff, as was demonstrated by all those who came to our NHS 75th Celebration & Protest on Saturday 1st July, with passing cars and vans continuously beeping in support!
A big thanks to all our speakers including Dr Sonia Adesara from Keep Our NHS Public, Virendra Sharma MP, Dr Onkar Sahota, Dr Kate Crossland (Green Party), Councillors Aysha Raza and Ben Wesson, Ealing Reclaim Social Care Action Group and Southall Community Alliance.
They all spoke with passion and anger about the serious understaffing and under-resourcing of the Service and were unanimous in their scepticism about the Government’s so called ‘Workforce Plan’ to address the serious staffing crisis. There was lots of support for staff who in desperation are taking strike action. And of course we had plenty of chanting, cake and some enjoyable singing of our NHS anthems.
There was a great turnout from all our lovely campaigners and supporters as usual, local politicians and community groups.
Thanks to all those who came and to Ealing Trades Union Council for all their help and continued support.
We certainly did show that we are here to fight for our NHS and support NHS workers all the way!
