LONDON RALLY REPORT

The fantastic rally to Defend London’s NHS on 10 March with over 500 people packing out Hammersmith Town Hall brought together those fighting to defend our health services in Hammersmith, Ealing and across London. 

It united health workers and campaigners, politicians and patients to pledge to vote for the NHS and to fight to win the policies we need to defend it.
