Stroud Against the Cuts (SATC) has organised a public meeting on Thursday March 15th, 7pm at the Subscription Rooms, Stroud, to celebrate Michael Lloyd’s recent success in the High Court, which resulted in NHS Gloucestershire agreeing to carry out a public consultation on their plans to transfer services in Gloucestershire out of the NHS. The issues arising from this case (see below) will be discussed in more detail, and the more general threats to our NHS will also be considered.
Tickets for the meeting are free but SATC recommend you book these from the Subscription Rooms if you wish to attend, as they expect a high turnout. The capacity is 400, and 300+ attended the public meeting back in August. The Subscription Rooms telephone number for Bookings and Enquiries is 01453 760900
