rs21 Event: Defending Our NHS - Friday 4th November 7pm - Old Town Hall, Carlisle

The Tories are on a mission to dismantle the NHS as we know it. With growing waiting lists, a crisis in mental health and threats to maternity services, the need for resistance has never been greater.

The Junior Doctors' dispute has shown the way, and raises a number of questions over how we can win back the NHS.

Speakers include:

  • Sophie Therese Williams from rs21 London; a final year medical student who has been highly active in mobilising for the junior doctors' strikes.
  • Natalie Bennett, former Green Party Leader, who has supported the strikes from the outset.

Join us to discuss the lessons we learn from the junior doctors' dispute and the next steps for defending our NHS. Please refer to the Facebook event page for further updates.
