Responding to the threat of further privatisation of health services
in the county, and to cuts in staffing and lengthening waiting lists,
members of a number of Oxfordshire organisations are banding together
to alert the public at a Public Meeting to be held in Oxford Town Hall
council chamber at 7.30pm on Tuesday 10th September.

Speakers will include: 

Dr John Lister from Health Emergency and Keep
Our NHS Public, the author of a number of books on health services
across the world,

Dan Fearnley from Oxfordshire Unison Health Branch,

Gina Ravens from Disabled People Against the Cuts, and

Debbie McIlveen of the newly established Oxford People’s Assembly

The chair will be Liz Peretz from Oxfordshire Keep Our NHS Public

The meeting is organised jointly by Oxon Keep Our NHS Public and
Oxford People’s Assembly.

Tickets for seats on coaches to the national ‘Save Our NHS’
demonstration in Manchester called by the Trades Union Congress on
29th September will be available at the meeting. A number of coaches
will be travelling from different parts of Oxfordshire.
