Kingswood 38 Degrees members rally for Cossham Hospital
By Rebecca Falcon
On Wednesday 11th March, 38 Degrees members in Kingswood rallied together to raise pressure for a minor injuries unit at Cossham Hospital.
38 Degrees members joined the rally, organised by the Save Cossham Hospital group. Together, they called for a Minor Injuries Unit at Cossham Hospital. One that’s run by the NHS, and not a private company. Lots of people turned up and they aimed to make sure the local press, MP candidates and members of the public heard just how important protecting NHS services is – and got behind the campaign.
The Save Cossham Hospital group want to show politicians hoping to be the next Kingswood MP, that local people want an NHS that focuses on saving lives. Not making money for private companies.
The rally was an opportunity to make sure every politician in Kingswood knew that if they intend to run down or sell off the NHS, they’ve got a fight on their hands. It was also a great chance for 38 Degrees members in Kingswood to meet other people who live nearby and to fight to protect our NHS.
