Leeds | Winter Crisis Day of Action
February 15 - 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Meeting point: Leeds General Infirmary – by the mini roundabout outside the Jubilee Wing / Accident & Emergency Department, LS1 3EX
A protest to end the winter – and all-year – crisis in our NHS!
We call on the Government to:
Reverse cuts to hospital beds – stop warehousing patients in corridor and makeshift wards (some of which, in Leeds, are staffed by private firms)!
Restore safe occupancy levels – 85% of capacity, not the current 95% +
Fill the 100,000 empty posts including over 40,000 nurses
Pay for vital repairs and equipment – £6.5 bn needed now!
Reverse £7bn cuts to Social Services which have have left 1.4m people without the support they need and many stuck in hospital
Stop wasteful and unaccountable privatisation of our health service
Organised by Leeds Keep Our NHS Public.
