#juniordoctor and #NHS events this week and next

We are focusing on supporting the junior doctors who are starting their all out strike on Tuesday 26th and Wed 27th from 8am to 5pm each day with understandable anxiety as well as steadfast determination. They need all the support we can give them so if you have time and availability please consider

  • Monday 25th between 9 and 5pm : dropping by to show solidarity with the  #juniordoctors who are keeping a stall going outside Quarry House ( behind the Playhouse car park).
  • Tues 26th and Wed. 27th from 8am until 12ish : support the jds’ pickets at  LGI and St. James. If you can write a message of support on a piece of cardboard to take along , bring trade union banners, placards etc that would be good. At LGI we will be putting up our bunting in front of the Brotherton entrance opposite Millennium Square. The docs may be on the move mid morning on Tuesday.
