Mansfield Save Our Services support the People’s March for the NHS which is due to arrive in Mansfield at 5.30pm today.

The march began in Jarrow on the 16th August, organised by a group of mums concerned about the privatisation and break-up of the National Health Service and the introduction of the Health & Social Care Act which aims to remove the responsibility of the government to provide universal healthcare.

They are being supported in their march around the country by ordinary people who use, work and depend on an NHS run for people not profits; they aim to arrive in London on 6th September, highlighting their concerns all the way.

A rally in Mansfield market place this evening will be an opportunity for the people of Mansfield to come together to show their support for the current NHS and join in a fun welcome for the marchers.

The march will then leave King’s Mill Centre at 10am tomorrow and will be going through Sutton-in-Ashfield, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Newstead, Hucknall, Bulwell arriving in Nottingham Forest Recreation Ground.

Please join the rally and encourage the marchers over these two days as we at Mansfield Save Our Services plus other local supporting groups will be doing. Save Our Services is a local campaigning group made up of community campaigners, trade unionists and others who oppose the governments ‘austerity measures’ and the cuts to local services.
