Recent events

STP Lobby – About 25 turned out with banners and placards and a couple of people from Kirklees tried to get press passes. An NHS Employers Fed representative said that no one was prepared to come out and speak with us.. Some people shared info re developments in their area and we ended with singing and chanting. Leeds Beckett media students did some filming and Made in Leeds TV did a small interview piece but turned up after we had disbanded.

Leeds KONP and Hospital Alert went to support a stall at Dewsbury Hospital against STP and hospital cuts. Good turn out and lots of cars hooted. Huddersfield had a similar protest at the same time.

Unite have launched a campaign on STPs. Happy to facilitate a regional mtg with key Unite organisers and was positive about inviting GMB and Unison as well as reps from regional campaigns. GMB regional health organiser has already indicated she is keen to share info and joint work. Unite happy to be one of the speakers at a public mtg and assist with resources.

Leeds KONP took our banner to Hands Off Huddersfield Royal Infirmary event on 12.11. Also to Barnsley to support their action to save the hyper stroke unit and other services at Barnsley Hospital.

About 20 turned out for a stall, protest, leafleting in Dortmund square after the Chancellor offered no further funds for health or social care in his autumn statement.
