Demonstration against the cuts at St George’s
Thursday 18 December 9.0am outside St George’s main
entrance in Effort Street
The hospital, like many others is being starved of much needed funds. This is
impacting on services. It also has a detrimental effect on staff who work at the hospital.
The board, before it is too late, should make the public aware about what is happening.
Then together they, along with the people that the hospital serves and the staff who work there, should demand of the government more resources and an im- mediate cash injection.
No more cuts at St George’s
