Andy Prendergast GMB Senior Organiser said “GMB is asking members and the public to support the demonstration on Saturday with GMB flags and placards.

We need to march again to defend ourselves from having just one A&E for 750,000 residents.

The effect of the proposed cuts to Lewisham hospital and the NHS in South East London will costs lives.

People will have to travel further for worse services, what's happening exposes the lie that the NHS is safe in Tory hands”.
