Report from #ourNHS March 4th

My Day at the #ourNHS Protest

On 4th March 2017 I attended a march to Save the NHS in London, along with another 250,000 like-minded people. The trains were mucked up, so we drove to Tooting and then got a bus to Clapham Junction and then the train. It was worth the effort even though transport made things difficult. As I work as a Care and Support Worker, I have seen due to funding cuts services are on their knees.

I went with some members of the North East Hampshire Labour Party, Spencer, his family, and Mike. A number of families participated in the march to ensure that the NHS is protected for future generations and everyone gets the excellent service we deserve. I participated in a choir with Mike. I felt a sense of togetherness as I marched to hear a speech by Jeremy Corbyn. This brought back the reasons why I joined the Labour Party in 2015 to get Jeremy Corbyn in as leader.

The NHS is a right we all deserve to have. As Aneurin Bevan said when the NHS was founded:

"Illness is neither an indulgence for which people have to pay, nor an offence for which they should be penalised, but a misfortune, the cost of which should be shared by the community."

Let's ensure future generations will have a brilliant NHS service.
