Health campaigners march against cutbacks
MORE than 100 people are expected to march through Folkestone on Saturday in protest over health cuts.
The event has been organised by health unions who make up the group NHS Together.
Folkestone was chosen as a venue for a protest because of current threats to the town’s Royal Victoria Hospital, with health bosses planning to sell off part of the building.
Demonstrators will be in the town centre from 9am handing out leaflets.
The march will assemble in the precinct at 11am and goes to Radnor Park where there will be speeches by Folkestone mayor Janet Andrews and David Shortt, from the Campaign for Health in East Kent.
