Happy birthday, NHS: 63 years old - can't retire yet!

I shall sneak out between bouts of feverish editing today to go on this march to celebrate the 63rd birthday of the NHS, oppose the cuts it's facing and warn that the government still plans to go ahead with the creeping privatisation of the service through its Health and Social Care Bill - paused but, alas, not abandoned.
March to defend the NHS from cuts and privatisation

The Unite union and Keep our NHS Public organised march to defend the NHS from cuts and privatisation takes place this Tuesday, 5 July, from 5:30pm.

Assemble at Savoy Street, Strand, WC2E to march along the Strand, past Trafalgar Square down Whitehall. Finishing point and rally: Old Palace Yard, opposite the Houses of Parliament

Speakers include: Len McCluskey (Unite General Secretary), Dr Wendy Savage (Keep our NHS Public)

Organised by Unite and Keep our NHS Public
