PROTEST OUTSIDE MARGATE HOSPITAL

SAT 3 FEB: People gather outside Margate’s QEQM hospital to protest against cuts in the NHS. Proposals have been made which will mean the closure of the stroke unit in Margate forcing stroke patients to travel to Ashford well over an hour away and over the distance judged safe for their survival. Today’s protest was called by the Save Our NHS in Kent group who are now planning a march from Margate hospital on Saturday 24 February.
