PROTEST ON THURSDAY 9 JULY AGAINST THOSE WHO WANT TO CLOSE LONGTON COTTAGE HOSPITAL

9am outside the Civic Centre in Stoke!

Next Thursday 9th July Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Partnership Trust bosses will attempt to sell their plans to the City Council’s Overview & Scrutiny Committee at the Civic Centre in Stoke. This committee is made up of 9 local councillors.

SAVE LONGTON COTTAGE HOSPITAL campaigners will be protesting against the Trust’s closure plans outside the Civic Centre from 9am and urging the Overview & Scrutiny Committee councillors to back our campaign.

Save Longton Cottage Hospital campaign group, backed by the support of around 4000 local people will be calling on all those councillors to oppose any idea of the closure of Longton Cottage Hospital.

Instead they should demand that the Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent Partnership Trust and the Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG’s) go back to the drawing board and come up with plans that include no loss of our much needed hospital beds and no closure of Longton Cottage or any other local community hospitals.

The message to the bosses of the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Trust and the CCG’s from Longton Cottage staff and NHS service users is quite clear. The fight to save our Longton Cottage Hospital will continue.

Our march next Saturday will provide a launch pad to strengthen our fight to SAVE LONGTON COTTAGE HOSPITAL. We hope YOU can make it!

* * Stop Press – The City council have moved the Overview & Scrutiny meeting to the council chamber to allow more members of the public to listen to the ‘hospital closers’ attempts to justify what they are doing.

One representative of Unison and one representative of the Trade Unionist & Socialist Coalition (TUSC) are being given the right to speak against their plans.

Come along to support our protest and let them know that we do not want OUR local hospital to be closed!
