New Year's Demo at City

Despite the best attempts by the powers that be to bury the bad news, demonstrators turned out yesterday to campaign against the downgrading of City Hospital's A&E service which was recently rubber stamped by the government funded "Independent" review panel. This article in the Stirrer implies that it is a stitch-up by Sandwell, but I am not convinced; this whole episode is just another example of the incompetence of the Trust board that happens to be less worse to Sandwell than it does Birmingham. After all, as the article points out, if the new hospital ever gets built, Sandwell effectively loses its hospital, despite claims to the reverse of the Trust Board.

Well done to all those who turned up. The fight is not over.
