Free bus from Derry to Belfast UNISON rally against health service cuts

A UNISON spokesperson has asked Derry people to 'mobilise in support of our health services' by taking a free bus from Derry to a Belfast rally this Saturday. Niall McCarroll of the trade union, UNISON, said: "Today the health service in Northern Ireland suffers from constant review and reorganisation, from chronic under funding, from increasing privatisation of medicine and continuous staff shortages. "This has left us with growing waiting lists, unacceptable waiting times and the closure and removal of vital services at primary, acute and community level. Our services are stretched to breaking point. "It is time for us all to stand up and defend it, and to demand a health and social care system that is properly funded and fit for purpose. "Every individual, group, organisation and community in Northern Ireland looks to our NHS to be there when we need it. Join with us to send a strong Peoples' message in support of the NHS. Share the call across the community. "Join the march and rally on Saturday 30th June @ 1.00pm, Writers Square, Belfast, to demand the health service we deserve. Bring your banners and placards, family and friends. "Free UNISON bus leaving from Sainsbury s on Strand Road at 10am Saturday 30th June, picking up along the way at Derry Railway Station, Altnagelvin Hospital, Drumahoe and Dungiven."
