Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

Cam­paign­ers in Wishaw joined a na­tional cam­paign to cel­e­brate the 70th birth­day of the NHS.

Ac­tivists from the lo­cal branch of the Labour Party were gath­er­ing sig­na­tures for their NHS birth­day card out­side the Houldsworth Health Cen­tre on Ke­nil­worth Av­enue.

Wishaw coun­cil­lor An­gela Feeney, who is also the Labour Party can­di­date for Mother­well and Wishaw con­stituency, said: “It was great to be out with lo­cal ac­tivists to cel­e­brate this land­mark birth­day.

“It of­fers us all the chance to recog­nise the work of its staff.

“In times of un­prece­dented de­mand and fi­nan­cial pres­sure, our health­care work­ers are the lifeblood of the NHS, and it is their hard work that keeps the health ser­vice run­ning.”
