Save Lewisham Hospital March

Film Length: 7:15

25,000 people march in Lewisham, South London, to stop the proposed closure of their hospital’s A&E department and downgrading of their maternity ward, cheered on by virtually every shop, pub, cafe and car they pass.

Lewisham hospital is solvent and one of the top 40 hospitals in the country, but the cuts are being made to pay for PFI debts in a health trust that Lewisham isn’t even part of.

Jeremy Hunt makes the final decision on Friday Feb 1st – if the government gets away with this, the whole NHS is in grave danger.
