March to save Chase Farm A&E, Saturday 2 Feb

Last Saturday I joined the march to save Lewisham Hospital's A&E and maternity services. This Saturday you can join the march in Enfield to save Chase Farm A&E. Losing the A&E will have a major impact on Barnet residents, as those living near Chase Farm will no longer have that option, and those attennding Barnet General will be sharing those services with more people.

Here is the Barnet Alliance publicity about the march:
Join us on the march to save Chase Farm A&E on Saturday 2 February, meet 1pm at the War Memorial, Enfield Town. Bring banners, friends and family.

Keep Chase Farm Hospital's A&E march from at the war memorial on Chase Green, in Chase Side, Enfield.

DEMONSTRATORS are planning to march through Enfield in protest at the planned closure of A&E and maternity services at Chase Farm Hospital.

The march is being organised by the North East London Council of Action, a group campaigning against hospital cuts. It is being supported by the Save Chase Farm campaign and the London Fire Brigade Union and will start at 1pm at the war memorial on Chase Green, in Chase Side, Enfield, proceed through Enfield Town centre and end at the hospital.

This will affect us in Barnet directly as it will impact on the capacity of Barnet General hospital, therefore we will join the march in solidarity with our neighbours, to oppose cuts to any NHS facilities and to protect our own services.
